Neuroscience 2017: Paths to Recovery
Saturday, April 22, 2017; 8:30am - 1:00pm
Neuroscience 2017 is aimed at mental health professionals, as well as consumers and their families, throughout the State of Connecticut. Presentations - which are non-technical in nature and geared toward the general public - will highlight recent advances in basic and clinical neuroscience and explain their promise for revolutionary advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness. There will be ample time for questions from the audience. In addition to remarks by Mrs. Dukakis, faculty from Yale’s Department of Psychiatry will speak.
The speakers are set for Neuroscience 17: Philip R. Corlett, PhD, Finding Beliefs in the Brain: Targeting Delusions and Hallucinations; Robert Ostroff, MD, Neurostimulation Treatments for Mood Disorders; Godfrey D. Pearlson, MD, Identifying Subtypes of Psychotic Illness Using Biological Measures; and Gerard Sanacora, MD, PhD, Ketamine and Other Rapidly Acting Antidepressants: Facts and Fantasy.
