This course is an integrated approach to neurological diseases, which includes background information as well the diagnosis, the treatment, and the biological mechanisms of the diseases under study. The topic for Fall 2015 is “Stress and the Brain”. This course focuses on understanding the stress system using the framework of allostasis that highlights the brain as an adapting interface between the changing environment and the biological self. Presentations will review evidence showing how regions of the brain mediate the well-established association between stress and health. Models of acute and chronic stress responses will be covered, as well as sources of variation in stress responses that can introduce a bias towards stress-related brain disease. Research involving clinical outcomes of stress-related disorders will be presented, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Congratulations to the many NRC faculty members who received this great honor!
