Yin and Yang of Mood Regulation: Brain as an Immune-Neural Interface: Relevance for Treatment of Mood Disorders

Wednesday, October 24
10:20 AM - 11:35 AM
Location: Tangerine WF1

Glia-Neural junction is the key information processing unit in the brain and the primary site of cytopathology associated with MDD. Neurotransmission, immune and neurotrophic signaling are all altered at the glia-neural junction in many depressed patients. These interactions are of key importance for understanding mechanisms of action of novel pharmacologic agents but also processes which mediate association between increased inflammation / microglia activation and exacerbation of suicidal ideation.

This session is part of the “New Perspectives in Advanced Psychopharmacology” preconference. Additional fees apply and pre-registration is required.
