A talk with Dr. Joshua Gordon about how brain circuit malfunctions cause psychiatric diseases.

Basic scientific research holds the key to understanding how malfunctions in the circuitry of the brain create psychiatric symptoms. MUCH of this kind of research is needed now to improve both diagnoses and therapies over the next several years. Joshua Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., of Columbia University School of Medicine, One Mind Rising Star Research Award winner, is doing some of the most exciting research in this field. This week’s Brain Waves segment brings you an interview with this wonderful scientist, in which he describes some of the discoveries he has been able to make with the One Mind award, how they inform his psychiatry and vice versa, and why he is hopeful for the future of neuroscience and for patients with psychiatric diseases. This segment included a question and answer section with Dr. Gordon from Wednesday, October 24, 2012 through Friday, October 26, 2012. Comments are now closed.
