Ketamine: Why Now? How? Where Do We Go from Here?



Each month The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation hosts a Meet the Scientist Webinar featuring a researcher discussing the latest findings related to mental illness. In June, 2018, the Foundation featured Dr. John H. Krystal of the Yale University School of Medicine.

Description: Can the fast-acting antidepressant ketamine help people with PTSD? Scientists theorize that traumatic stress impairs the integrity of connections between nerve cells in the brain, leading to a variety of often debilitating problems, including those experienced by people with PTSD. Dr. Krystal explores the possibility of restoring damaged neural connections to provide relief for patients.
