Abstract

The history of the first convulsive treatment is summarized here in commemoration of its 75th anniversary. The neuropathological and clinical findings underlying the theoretical basis of the method are reviewed, together with the case histories of the first batch of patients who underwent convulsive therapy. The early indications and effectiveness of convulsive therapy are also discussed. Finally, in a broader context, the role of convulsive treatment in the development of modern biological psychiatry and Laszlo Meduna's contribution to this development are touched upon.
