The Neuroscience Of Trauma: From Trigger Warnings To Ptsd says

This talk is a repeat of the event at Science on Tap Vancouver held at the Kiggins Theatre on Wednesday, November 11, 2015.

Experiencing traumatic events can lead to physical, chemical, and epigenetic alterations in the brain, and neuroscientists are beginning to understand how those changes affect our behavior. At this Science on Tap, Dr. Larry Sherman,, a senior scientist in the Division of Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), will explore the various ways the brain is modified following traumatic events, and will look at ways neuroscientists are trying to address these changes to help people with PTSD, depression, and other neuropsychiatric disorders.

Dr. Larry Sherman has spoken at several of our past events, including "You and Your Racist Brain: The Neuroscience of Prejudice," and "Lust, Chocolate, and Prairie Voles: The Neuroscience of Pleasure and Love."

This topic will be repeated at Science on Tap Portland at the Clinton Street Theater on Tuesday, November 17, 2015.
