Up-to-date research drawing from Dr. Dennis Charney’s synthesis on resiliency will be presented by Thanh Nguyen, Biopsychology ’17. Friday, Dec. 9 from 11-12 p.m. in the Dickgeisser classroom, Griswold Library. Using an empirical-based pluralistic model of psychiatric disease, Thanh’s 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).
