"The effectiveness of electroconvulsive therapy: A literature review" by John Read and Richard Bentall

A psychiatric publication has published this review article by two psychology professors that challenges the use of electroshock, also known as electroconvulsive therapy or ECT. The authors conclude that, "the cost-benefit analysis for ECT is so poor that its use cannot be scientifically justified." You may download a PDF of the 15 page article published by the Epidemiologia e Psichiatria Sociale, 19, 4, 2010, here.
