About this event

Brain Stimulation for Eating Disorders with UK Professor Ulrike Schmidt, MD PhD FRCPsych and PhD students Michaela Flynn & Lucy Gallop
Come and hear world expert in brain stimulation for eating disorders, Ulrike Schmidt, and PhD students, Lucy Gallop and Michaela Flynn, talk about the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for individuals with eating disorders.

TMS is a safe, precise and targeted brain surface hemisphere stimulation.  TMS enhances neuroplasticity and facilitates new learning.  Study outcomes have shown a 45% physical recovery for chronic AN patients who were feeling stuck, abandoned and had given up hope.

UIrike is the Professor of Eating Disorders at King’s College London and a Consultant Psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. She is also a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Senior Investigator. A key focus of her research is the development of brief scalable interventions. She has led the development of MANTRA, a NICE-recommended psychotherapy and of FREED, a multi-award winning early intervention programme. She has also pioneered the use of novel brain-directed treatments in eating disorders.  Ulrike was a member of the NICE Eating Disorders Guidelines development group, chair of the Eating Disorders Section at the Royal College of Psychiatrists and a board member of the Academy for Eating Disorders.  She has written some 450 peer-reviewed papers and many other publications.
