Using mood disorders as an exemplar the talk will probe some of the key issues impacting our understanding and treatment of psychiatric illnesses. It will also detail a number of ongoing studies and share some exciting neuroimaging findings in adolescents and adults that are providing clues as to the inception of emotional disorders and the nature of suicide.
