Luton Lecture in General Psychiatry 9/22 | "Novel neural biomarkers of mood disorder risk: replication, treatment targets and next steps"

Luton Lecture AY24

"Novel neural biomarkers of mood disorder risk: replication, treatment targets and next steps"

About the Speaker:

Mary L. Phillips, MD
Distinguished Professor in Psychiatry and Clinical and Translational Science Pittsburgh Foundation - Emmerling Endowed Chair in Psychotic Disorders Director, Center for Research in Translational & Developmental Affective Neuroscience

Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh


The activity is designed to help the learner: 

1. To explain how measures of large scale neural network activity predict future risk of mania and depression 

2. To describe research replicating predictive relationships among neural biomarkers and mania and depression risk

3. To demonstrate how these novel neural markers can be targeted by neuromodulation as a way forward to develop new treatments for mood disorders 


Dr. Phillips uses state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to study biological processes underlying mood disorder risk. She has identified brain activity markers reflecting these processes to help improve early diagnosis and risk identification in youth and young adults; and targets these markers to develop novel brain stimulation treatments for mood disorders.
