The Study of Resiliency in Mood and Anxiety Disorders: A Pluralistic Approach
Friday, December 9, 2016 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Using an empirical-based pluralistic model of psychiatric disease, this talk explores multiple factors that contribute to resiliency in major depressive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. The philosophy underlying this approach is that the Decartes’ split between the mind and the brain as well as the computer-brain functional analog needs to be discarded and replaced by non-reducible empirical-based multidisciplinary research (molecular biology, neural circuitry, personality psychology, social and political environment). Up-to-date research drawing from Dr. Dennis Charney’s synthesis on resiliency will be presented by Thanh Nguyen, Biopsychology ’17
