2016 International Mental Health Research Symposium

On Friday, October 28, 2016 the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation hosted its 28th Annual International Mental Health Research Symposium. Guests were treated to insightful, educational and inspiring presentations by the 2016 Foundation Outstanding Achievement Prizewinners. Their work is revolutionizing the ability of neuroscientists to explore the brain and apply new information to prevent or reverse the course of mental illness. Two especially promising NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees also presented exciting work related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Noninvasive Neuromodulation for chronic pain. In addition, we were honored to have Robert O. Boorstin, Senior Vice President, Albright Stonebridge Group to present "A Search for Balance: Personal & Political Reflections on Mental Health."
