Grad Research: Using Brain Stimulation to Treat Mental Illness

Derrick Matthew Buchanan, who is pursuing his PhD in Neuroscience at Carleton, won third place in the 2017 Three Minute Thesis competition.

His topic was “Brain Stimulation as a Cost-Effective Treatment for Mental Illness and Neurological Disorders.”

The 3MT is a celebration of graduate student research that challenges grad students to communicate the key concepts of their research in a compelling presentation of three minutes or less. The Carleton 3MT began in 2013 and has grown in popularity every year. A panel of judges from within Carleton, the Ottawa community and from the Graduate Students’ Association evaluates each of the brief, compelling presentations.
