Explore the nexus of neuroscience and psychiatry


In the early 20th century, the Freud-inspired distinction between brain and mind generated two approaches to understanding the human brain: neuroscience and psychiatry. Recent advances in medical research and scientific technologies have identified common features across neurological disorders that challenge Freud’s divide.

Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel leads a distinguished panel of neuroscientists, psychiatrists and biologists in unpacking the latest scientific approaches to understanding and treating brain disorders. They will also examine whether the science in this area is living up to its promise when it comes to improving human health.
