Neuroscience and Depression

On February 11, our next Science@Work lecturer, Sage Aronson, will be on campus working with students in Ms. Wright’s Neuroscience class. The students will be exploring some movement-based neuroscience topics during the day before enjoying his lecture, open to the full community, at 6:30 PM. During the lecture, Aronson will discuss the causes of depression, the functioning of the teenage brain, and positive steps to prevent the onset of depression at a young age.
 
Sage Aronson is a PhD candidate in the department of Neurosciences at the University of California, San Diego, where he studies the neurobiological underpinnings of how the brain processes valence (whether something is good or bad) and how the dysregulation of these systems can lead to depression. In addition to his role as a graduate student, in 2017, he started a company, Neurophotometrics, that manufactures an imaging device to record how signals propagate throughout the brain.
 
Many parts of the brain are involved in determining whether a particular experience or action is perceived to be good or bad. Our ability to appropriately assign these valence signals is fundamental to our everyday life. But what happens when this delicately balanced circuitry gets thrown out of balance? 
 
In his talk, PhD candidate Sage Aronson will provide an overview of what we know about how the brain assigns and processes valence, how individual symptoms of depression can be caused by the up- or down-regulation of individual components of this circuitry, and positive steps we can take to help prevent the onset of depression at a young age. We look forward to an engaging day of neuroscience at Tabor!
 
The lecture is free and open to the public on February 11 at 6:30 PM in the Lyndon South Auditorium in the Stroud Academic Center at 242 Front Street, Marion, MA. Feel free to bring a friend.
