BAP at Cheltenham Science Festival posted on Wednesday, 4th April 2012

BAP will be conducting two sessions at the Cheltenham Science Festival on The Depressed Brain and Mental Health: Genes or Environment?

The Depressed Brain

Friday 15 June 2012, 14:30

Does the brain of someone with depression have a different structure or behaviour when they are depressed? How can triggers like stress affect the brain and cause depression? How do antidepressants work? Catherine Harmer and Carmine Pariante research depression and the action of drugs on the small scale - studying cells and molecules - and large scale - imaging the whole brain. Join them to explore the latest research.

Friday 15 June 2012, 16:00

Some people are more susceptible to mental illnesses like schizophrenia and depression than others. But how do genetics and life experiences - such as childhood trauma or drug use - combine to give rise to these conditions? Could genetic tests help predict which treatments work best? Neuroscientist Gavin Reynolds and psychiatrist Jeremy Hall explore the genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors in mental disorders and their treatment.
