Bipolar Disorder is one of the top ten causes of medical disability and mortality in the World. Developing more effective and more rapidly acting treatments, especially for the depression phase which is the most debilitating, depends on a better understanding of the causes of bipolar disorders. This blog radio talk by two of Columbia University’s experts on bipolar disorder will describe the latest results from brain imaging studies and regulation of the body’s inflammatory defenses. It will explain how these findings can lead to new treatment approaches and diagnostic tools.
