About this event

  • Date and time Tue 16 Apr 2019 from 12:00am to 12:00am
  • Location The Convention Centre Dublin
  • Organised by Public Engagement Programme, British Neuroscience Association

As part of the British Neuroscience Association's 2019 Festival of Neuroscience.

Ed's recently published book,"The Inflamed Mind", will form the basis of this talk, discussing the new science on the link between depression and inflammation of the body and brain.

He will explain how and why we now know that mental disorders can have their root cause in the immune system, and outline a future revolution in which treatments could be specifically targeted to break the vicious cycle of stress, inflammation and depression.
