Thursday, March 22 at 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Trinity University's Distinguished Scientists Lecture Series presents Scott O. Lilienfeld, professor in the Department of Psychology at Emory University, who will present a talk titled "The Brave New World of the Brain: Promises and Perils for Understanding Mental Illness."
In this talk, Dr. Lilienfeld will examine the increasing influence of neuroscience on psychology, especially clinical psychology. He will discuss the potential of neuroscientific discoveries to transform our classification and treatment of mental disorders as well as our understanding of their etiology. At the same time, he will express concerns regarding the dangers of focusing unduly on a single level of analysis in explaining psychopathology, and will delineate potential perils in the premature application of brain-based discoveries to mental disorders.
The Distinguished Scientists Lecture Series is made possible by the Walter F. Brown Family of San Antonio.
