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.

Neuroscientist Gavin Reynolds and psychiatrist Jeremy Hall explore the genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors in mental disorders and their treatment.
