Brief presentations will be followed by an open discussion. 

In the Pittsburgh tradition of fostering cross-disciplinary discussions on research and investigations of mechanisms of major mental illnesses, we hope you will join us for the "Reflections on Depression" seminar/group discussion at the Bridgeside Point II Facility

The goals are: (1) to provide an informal and interactive venue for basic science and clinical researchers alike, to review and discuss recent findings, new perspectives and other important topics relating to depression, (2) to engage us all in thinking about and discussing disease structure and associated mechanisms, symptom dimensions and underlying circuits, clinical presentations, underlying pathologies and relevant animal models, cellular and molecular brain changes, etc., and (3) hopefully to generate a robust translational conversation and new ideas on how to move forward with investigating and treating depression.   

Coffee and cookies will be available before and after the meeting.
