Psychiatrist Dr Tomiki Sumiyoshi is the Director of Preventive Intervention for Psychiatric Disorders at National Centre of Neurology and Psychiatry, with extensive experience in clinical and basic research on schizophrenia and mood disorders. His deep interest in schizophrenia is driven by his background investigating neurobiological substrates responsible for cognitive impairment, but also in discovering effective therapeutics to facilitate social outcomes in patients with psychiatric conditions. Sumiyoshi explains that the connection between psychiatric disorders and cognitive impairment is well-established. Yet, limited efforts have been made towards implementing novel approaches that can truly help psychiatric patients to overcome this impairment, and hence live a normal life. He believes it is critical that current research needs to shift its focus on investigating innovative methods such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) that can facilitate cognitive enhancement in patients with schizophrenia.
