This week we interview Barbara Lipska. Barbara is a leading expert on the neuroscience of mental illness and she has an absolutely fascinating story to tell. It would be unfair to give anything away from the interview or the book, so download the episode and give it a listen!

We discuss:

  • What does a typical day look like for the director of the Human Brain Collection Core at the National Institute of Mental Health?
  • What does a brain look like when you cut into it?
  • What progress is being made around mental health research?
