Stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) vs.Mindstrong HealthMood Monitoring via Invasive Brain Recordings or Smartphone SwipesWhich Would You Choose?That's not really a fair question. The ultimate goal of invasive recordings is one of direct intervention, by delivering targeted brain stimulation as a treatment.

Years ago, when I experienced debilitating bouts of anxiety, I would easily lose my perspective and feel like an outcast — a freak. I momentarily transformed into a negative abstract of myself that possessed undignified emotional and behavioral idiosyncrasies.

I’m sure you remember the scene from one of the most brilliant Monty Python movies ever made: Life of Brian. The insurgent commando plans the abduction of Pilate’s wife in return for all the horrors they had to endure from the Roman Empire. And then they ask the rhetorical question: what have they ever done for them. Apart from sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done...
