Neuroscience 2015 is aimed at mental health consumers and their families, as well as mental health professionals, throughout the State of Connecticut. Presentations – which are non-technical in nature and geared towards the general public – will highlight recent advances in basic and clinical neuroscience and explain their promise for revolutionary advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness. There will be ample time for questions from the audience.
