title Cognitive Neuroscience and Bipolar Disorder: New Insights into Relevant Outcomes and Mechanisms of Disease
description From the abstract: "Traditional clinical descriptions of both phenomena and outcome in bipolar disorder are atheoretical and have limited heuristic potential. Cognitive neuroscience increasingly offers, in contrast, a novel synthesis of how the brain works in health and, more speculatively, in disease. The task is to identify semi-discrete components of cognition that provide insights into pathophysiology or drug action." From the Sixth International Conference on Bipolar Disorder; all six conferences are online in video and audio, with the seventh conference to come soon. Meanwhile, congratulations to John McManamy, recipient of this year's prestigious Mogens Schou Award for Public Service (pictured above) for his expert patient journalism. Well-deserved, and inspiring.
