Some Quotes

"The ECT patients' inferior (test) performance does suggest that ECT causes permanent brain damage."
American Journal of Psychiatry (1973)
"Is ECT necessary as a treatment modality in psychiatry? The answer is absolutely not. In the United States, 92% of psychiatrists do not use it despite the existence of an established journal entirely devoted to the subject to give it scientific respectability. ECT is and always will be a controversial treatment and an example of shameful science."
