Steve Hyman gives a talk on how neurobiology can influence the understanding and treatment of mental disorders. He outlines the main challenges clinicians face, including the complexity of the human brain, the limitations of brain accessibility and introspection, forcing clinicians to treat patients as both objects and subjects when treating psychiatric conditions.
This lecture was part of the event 'Psychiatry and society: will neuroscience change understandings and practices?'. It was held at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
