    The Neuroscience of Emotional Feelings: Preclinical Models of Psychiatric Disorders and Novel Treatments for Depression

    Free For Members & NYPSI Students

    Friday, January 8, 2016
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Jaak Panksepp, Ph.D.
    Discussant: Jean Roiphe, M.D.

    This talk will summarize emerging knowledge of how primal affects are generated by subcortical brain systems that are homologous in all mammals. Seven emotional systems—SEEKING, RAGE, FEAR, LUST, CARE, PANIC and PLAY—have been identified using Deep Brain Stimulation. Accruing knowledge about the functions and neurochemistries of these systems provides a novel database for thinking about i) the imbalanced emotional infrastructure of psychiatric problems, ii) how the efficacy of psychotherapeutic approaches might be better understood, and iii) insights into how novel psychiatric medicines might be developed.
