This webinar on brain imaging, explores how adaptable the brain is and what neuroscience research is telling us about the experience of moods. Brain scans let us look at the structure or architecture of the brain and how it is functioning while we think or feel emotions. Discoveries about how the brain develops and changes and how we can impact that, are important to understanding the experience of mood disorders.
