The Neuroscience of Trauma: From Trigger Warnings to PTSD

As of January 5, 2016, this event is SOLD OUT. We're not currently planning on doing a 4th showing (though it's possible), but there are a few things you might want to know:

First, we're doing another event on PTSD on Tuesday, February 2, with war correspondent and former Marine David J. Morris. He

will be talking about his book "The Evil Hours: A Biography of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder," which is a memoir of his own battles with post-traumatic stress, as well as an exploration of the rich scientific, literary, and cultural history of the condition. https://www.facebook.com/events/206437103026321/

Also, we'll be recording the talk on "The Neuroscience of Trauma" and posting it on our podcast, A Scientist Walks Into A Bar. http://www.viaproductions.org/podcast/ It should be available in the week following January 23.


***EVENT DESCRIPTION***

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, http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/research/research-expertise/researchers/index.cfm?personid=2340, 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."
