public lecture - Professor David Nutt

"My talk will explore the growing evidence that psychiatric disorders can be meaningfully understood in terms of alterations in brain function. This approach has developed from modern neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI and PET. It not only explains the origins of these disorders but also offers new approaches to discovering innovative treatments. We hope it may also help de-stigmatize psychiatric disorders"
