title Neuronal Plasticity Cascades: Genes to Behavior Pathways in the Pathophysiology and Treatment of Bipolar Disorder
description Moving away from the touchy-feely stuff, let's get molecular. A leading expert on bipolar disorder discusses neuronal cascades from gene expression to receptors to behaviours to drugs to plasticity, with a look at recent innovative research into tamoxifen, AMPA and NMDA antagonists (like ketamine) and why ketamine may be more effective than SSRIs. Also: using high-density EEG and MEG to detect synaptic changes, gene expression and cellular plasticity, neuroprotective proteins and mood stabilizers, micro RNA binding and more. Snappy talk on cutting edge topics.
