"Risk for Mood Disorders: A Context-Sensitive Approach"


Wednesday, February 22rd, 1:30pm
Seay 4.244 Auditorium


Abstract: Two of the most consistently identified risk factors for mood disorders are life stress and sleep/circadian disturbances. Despite their importance, we understand relatively little about how these risk factors trigger or sustain mood disorders. In this talk I review my research, which highlights a context-sensitive approach to developing more precise models of the mechanisms by which life stress and sleep/circadian disturbances increase vulnerability to mood disorders.
