Finding and Fixing Broken Brain Circuits in Depression

Biomarkers have transformed modern medicine but remain largely elusive in psychiatry, due in part to the way we diagnose mental illness. Dr. Liston will discuss on-going efforts to rethinking our approach to diagnosis and treatment by identifying new subtypes of depression based on dysfunction in mood-related brain circuits.
