Exercise Treatment for Mood Disorders: A Neurobiological Rationale

Dr. Mohammad Alsuwaidan shares that evidence has shown time and time again that exercise is health-promoting for the body and the mind. More recently, studies have demonstrated positive effects of exercise in mood disorders (primarily unipolar depression). What remains unclear is the underlying brain biology. What are the neurobiological deficits that occur in bipolar disorder? Do we have proof that exercise works at these levels to alter brain function? How do we translate laboratory evidence into clinical realities? These are some of the questions that are addressed during this webinar.
