For example, the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex functional network (FN) (including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, orbitofrontal cortex, and posterior cingulate cortex) and the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) FN (including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, sensorimotor cortex, parahippocampal gyrus, and midbrain) have been reported to be prognostic neuroimaging biomarkers that can predict the outcome of ECT in TRD patients and can also be used to guide personalized treatment decisions.
