Event description
With mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression, it is important to be at the forefront when addressing these conditions.

About this Event

Traditional methods leave much to be desired and patients are left with very few options from both the natural and pharmaceutical world. The role of infections in the pathogenesis of different mood disorders may hold the key. In fact, some viruses can directly affect the central nervous system while other microbes can manipulate nervous system function from a distance.
