    100-18:  Paradigm Shift in Treating Mental Illness: Neurophysiological Approach to Prescribing

    There is a strong body of evidence indicating that neurobiological changes in the brain/body contribute to psychiatric symptoms. Many of these symptoms are treated with drugs, which are chemicals designed to act on naturally occurring chemicals in the CNS (e.g., neurotransmitters) or neural structures (e.g., neurotransmitter transporters, neural membranes). Practitioners use evidence-based data when prescribing medications which are based on patients’ neurobiological changes and the drugs that target those changes. The content will be applied to a case study at the end of the session.
