Precision Medicine, Treatment Innovation, and Health IT
The brain is wider than the sky,
The human brain has been described as the most complex object in the known Universe. Despite explosive growth in scientific understanding over the past century, many questions remain
Translating developments in neuroscience into better treatments for the millions of people experiencing brain disorders has been my professional passion. Over the past quarter century at UCLA, I've worked at improving diagnostic technologies and biomarkers to match patient to treatment more effectively (sometmes termed 'precision medicine'), and have investigated medications and psychotherapy in clinical trials. More recently I've focused on health IT -- how machine learning and mobile apps can improve health care -- and new neuromodulation treatments -- therapies that use electric or magnetic signals to treat disorders. I've worked as well to move trigeminal nerve stimulation (TNS) out of the research lab and into widespread clinical use in the U.S. and worldwide at NeuroSigma, Inc. This is my professional activities website.
Dr. Cook concluded his work at UCLA at the end of June, 2018.
He will open his new, by-referral-only practice in late August, 2018, providing advanced treatment options for depression and other disorders.
