A closer look at the future of psychiatry
We are taking a closer look this week at the future of psychiatry.
"Interventional psychiatry" is a cutting-edge field that bridges the gap between traditional therapy and medical interventions. It’s where brain scans can reveal the root of an individual's emotional struggles, and where a delicate touch with modern technology can reset the mind's equilibrium.
Dr. Heather Luing joins us to discuss advances in the field and how they differ from more traditional approaches.
Also today, we take a look at whether there may be some fact to the fictional television show The Last of Us, in which an infectious fungus turns people into zombies. Emily Monosson joined us to discuss her new book, Blight: Fungi and the Coming Pandemic.
