Nolan R. Williams, MD Instructor in Psychiatry and Director of the Brain Stimulation Laboratory, Stanford University

Nolan Williams, MD is a dual-trained psychiatrist-neurologist whose research focuses on the development of novel interventional techniques for neuropsychiatric disorders. Specifically, his research efforts have centered on developing an expertise in and helping patients with treatment-resistant depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), chronic pain, Tourette Syndrome (TS), and Parkinson's Disease (PD). He has studied a number of experimental therapeutic approaches, including epidural prefrontal cortical stimulation for individuals with highly refractory depression, ultra-brief electroconvulsive therapy, and deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the depression associated with PD. His wide-ranging skillset also includes ECT, rTMS, intravenous ketamine administration, and intraoperative neurophysiology (microelectrode recording).
