Towards a real understanding of depression

New York, New YorkThe Neuropsychoanalysis Association (NPSA) is hosting a conference for researchers and clinicians on depression, "Towards a Real Understanding of Depression: Lessons from the Treatment Battlefeld and New Research," on Friday, November 1, 2013 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, The Bonnie and Kenneth Davis Auditorium, 1470 Madison Avenue (between 101st and 102nd Streets) in New York City. Recent meta-analyses have indicated that SSRIs, although extremely effective for some, have not fulfilled their original promise of being a broadly successful anti-depressant. This full day program will be an interdisciplinary event focusing on pioneering work in biological psychiatry, basic neuroscience and other fields aimed at discovering new treatments for depression, including what have we learned so far, future directions; and how to use the data from new treatment research to hone in on the core pathophysiology of depression and models of brain organization which underlie approaches to treatment.

Featured keynote speakers include Steven Paul (Cornell), "Why we need new and better antidepressants: lessons from the treatment and clinical research battlefield;" and Jaak Panksepp (Washington State University), "Pre-clinical affective neuroscience modelling of depression, and evaluation of three new antidepressant strategies."
