DSM-5: Diagnosis versus Phenotypes

The new Research Domain Criteria from NIMH no longer use the DSM categorization as a valid predictor of therapy, and they now require biomarkers. The retrospectively developed phenotype model dates back a decade, with current prospective validation studies now allowing this model to be used prospectively to predict treatment approaches with medication as well as neurofeedback. The model and prospective validation studies will be presented.

The brain and body greatly benefit from physical exercise. Neurotransmitters, hormones, endorphins – there’s a much bigger story here than “runner’s high.” Learn why an exercise prescription should be part of your clinical tool kit for issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, as well as neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This talk will discuss the impact exercise has on neuromodulatory approaches because of how it impacts neurogenesis in general.
