Harvard Book Store welcomes acclaimed neuroscientist and psychiatrist EDWARD BULLMORE for a discussion of his new book, The Inflamed Mind: A Radical New Approach to Depression.

About The Inflamed Mind

Worldwide, depression will be the single biggest cause of disability in the next twenty years. But treatment for it has not changed much in the last three decades. In this game-changing book, University of Cambridge professor of psychiatry Edward Bullmore reveals the breakthrough new science on the link between depression and inflammation of the body and brain. He explains how and why we now know that mental disorders can have their root cause in the immune system, and outlines a future revolution in which treatments could be specifically targeted to break the vicious cycles of stress, inflammation, and depression.

The Inflamed Mind goes far beyond the clinic and the lab, representing a whole new way of looking at how mind, brain, and body all work together in a sometimes misguided effort to help us survive in a hostile world. It offers insights into how we could start getting to grips with depression and other mental disorders much more effectively in the future.

Praise

"A rousing, straight-from-the-shoulder call for a new approach to treating depression . . . Impressive and valuable . . . aimed at the general public, [The Inflamed Mind is] highly readable, and more than a little provocative." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Ed Bullmore provides a clearly written and compelling argument for the importance of the immune system and inflammation in depression. This lively book explains a major frontier in clinical neuroscience that is not only influencing research on depression, but also on schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease." ―Steven E. Hyman, Harvard University

“As one of the first people to brand themselves as an immunopsychiatrist, Professor Bullmore has led us out of the dark ages and shone the light on the crucial link between systemic inflammation and mental illness. This set of insights is creating a paradigm shift in psychiatry which heralds a new field of personalized psychiatry in the same way that we are seeing personalized therapy in cancer.” ―Sir Robert Lechler, president of the Academy of Medical Sciences
