Show Summary Details


This chapter summarizes the key points of personalized medicine, health care, and integrative neuroscience, including actionable recommendations of how the field might best be applied so as to create an effective and efficient health care system of personalized medicine for each and every patient. It focuses on ten factors that seem likely to expedite the assimilation of personalized medicine into mainstream clinical treatment of brain disorders. These include accelerating “brainmarker” discovery, codevelopment of brainmarkers with new medications, replication and validation of new biomarkers in real-world patient groups, and facilitating FDA registration and reregulation.
