2020 BRAIN Conference: Navigating Modern Neuroscience, Dallas, TX
March 4, 2020
Each year, the impact of modern neuroscience on psychiatry becomes increasingly clear. While biological models of mental illness once emphasized “chemical imbalances”, modern perspectives increasingly incorporate the role of genetics and epigenetics, a more nuanced understanding of molecular pathways, the importance of neuroplasticity, functional dynamics of neural circuits, and a range of novel therapeutic approaches.
But the challenge of integrating this content into our practice — and into the curricula that will train the next generation of psychiatrists — remains massive. Which content should be emphasized? And, critically, how can we bring this material to life in a compelling and engaging manner?
In this year’s BRAIN conference, participants will have the opportunity to define their own personal learning objectives — both as a teacher and as a student. They will then select from sessions that are designed to bring a wide range of neuroscience content to life, employing a diverse set of teaching methods.
