Peter Bulow, M.D.
Assistant in Clinical Psychiatry
Dr. Peter Bulow is an assistant professor in psychiatry investigating novel brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and cranial electrical stimulation (CES) in the treatment of depression.
tDCS uses a small direct current supplied by damp sponge electrodes. In the treatment of depression, one electrode is placed over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. The effects of tDCS are polarity-specific. Cranial electrical stimulation (CES), uses one or more frequencies of a small alternating current. Though its efficacy has not been systematically studied, CES is FDA approved for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and depression.
