The authors found that the frontal, parietal, and cerebellar lobes were most frequently associated with EF when comparing results from different clinical populations; the occipital lobe was not correlated with EF in any group.

Long-Term Neuropsychological Safety of Subgenual Cingulate Gyrus Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression

Deep brain stimulation of the subgenual cingulate gyrus is a promising investigational intervention for treatment-resistant depression (TRD), but long-term outcome data are limited. Serial neuropsychological evaluations, using a comprehensive battery, were conducted on four subjects with TRD prior to surgery, and up to 42 months post-operatively. Reliable change methodology suggested general stability and/or select statistically reliable improvement in cognitive abilities over time.

Psychiatric Manifestations Associated With Mega Cisterna Magna
