Be polite to the brain, Ottosson advises.

At the successful 10th Annual Meeting of EFFECT, held at the psychiatric department of the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, the eminent Em prof Jan-Otto Ottosson gave a lecture reviewing the literature on ECT technique. Summarizing the recent evidence in favor of RUL ECT, he said that we should be polite to the brain, and that, if he would need ECT, he’d prefer to receive RUL ECT.
