The science behind anxiety in children and adolescents will be the focus of the next Brain & Behavior Research Foundation monthly webinar on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. Daniel S. Pine, M.D., Chief of Emotion and Development Branch and Chief of Child and Adolescent Research in the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), will discuss his research, which focuses on the epidemiology, biology and treatment of brain and behavior disorders in children and adolescents. His current research examines the degree to which mood and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents are associated with underlying abnormalities in the amygdala, prefrontal cortex and other brain regions.
The free webinar is open to the public, who can register online at bbrfoundation.org/webinars. During the last 15 minutes of the webinar, Dr. Pine will answer questions posed by participants.
This webinar is part of a monthly series in which Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, hosts presentations by leading mental health researchers who discuss and answer questions about the latest in new technologies, early intervention strategies and next-generation therapies for brain and behavior disorders and mental illness. Each webinar is live tweeted with the hashtag #brainchat. After the live event, recordings of the webinars are available on the Foundation’s website at: bbrfoundation.org/webinar.
