The Enteric Nervous System’s Effects on Moods & Behavior
Deborah Pardee, PhD, will address the Enteric Nervous System’s effect on moods and behavior at Mental Health Monday on September 24, 10-11:30AM at Yavapai College, 4215 Arts Village Drive sponsored by the Mental Health Coalition Verde Valley in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Yavapai College. The forum is free and open to the public.
According to Pardee, “The presentation will highlight specific disorders affected by dysfunction in the enteric nervous system, enabling the participant to identify and treat seemingly intractable mental health issues. This presentation will cover the effect of ENS disorders and their relationship to mental health disorders, including schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorder and anxiety disorders. It will address the most recent, cutting edge research available.”
