Manchester Informatics are pleased to announce that the next Seminar in the Human Behaviour Seminar Series will take place on 2nd June 2015. Professor Rebecca Elliott (Neuroscience & Psychiatry Unit) will present 'Brain Imaging in Mental Health.'
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.
