Description: Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series

How are moods generated and maintained in our brains? What are the pathways, and how are they controlled? Insight to these questions may be best provided through the study of children. Mood dysregulation is manifested in many clinical disorders in children. Two examples are depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which are major global mental health problems.

Our speakers, Shaw and Stringaris, are leaders in searching the genetic, neural pathways and brain development processes associated with ADHD and other mood dysfunctions. Shaw is the head of the NHGRI Neurobehavioral Clinical Research Section. Stringaris is chief of the NIMH Mood Brain & Development Unit. Their experimental research is coupled with clinical cognitive approaches with the goal of understanding mood mechanisms and their therapeutic management.
