Thanks to all those that have already registered for tomorrow’s free lunchtime Seminar on Human Behaviour. For those that haven’t already done so, this is the final opportunity to book your place. Professor Rebecca Elliott (Neuroscience & Psychiatry Unit) will present ‘Brain Imaging in Mental Health: How can Brain Imaging Help Us To understand Depression & Addiction?’
Twenty years ago modern brain imaging techniques were hailed as likely to revolutionise psychiatry. This free lunchtime Seminar will examine how brain imaging has helped us understand mental health problems, specifically depression and addiction. The presentation will consider how brain imaging techniques may help us think about mechanisms of vulnerability and successful treatment.
Professor Elliott’s research focuses on understanding the neurobiological basis of emotional, motivational & social processes, particularly in the context of psychiatric disorders. She combines brain imaging techniques (particularly functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI) and neuropsychological testing to explore neurocognitive aspects of emotional, motivational and social function, in healthy volunteers and patients with neuropsychiatric problems.
Light refreshments will be provided.
