Upcoming Schedule

July: Brain imaging & mood: The role of the brain in mental health

Date: 14 July 2021
Time: 12 noon (1 hour)

This webinar will explore 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.

  • Dr Dara Cannon, Neuroscientist, researcher and lecturer at NUI Galway. Dara is a neuroscientist who drinks too much tea, runs about after her kids, and spends a lot of time thinking about the brain. She teaches human brain anatomy to the students in medicine and science at NUI Galway and runs a small laboratory using brain scanning to understand mood and anxiety disorders and collaborates with other academics internationally on these questions.
