Feel Good From Within with Yvette Le Blowitz – #SPAITGIRL Podcast
EP.208 – The Balanced Brain w/Dr Camilla Nord, Neuroscientist & Author
A powerful reframing of mental health, grounded in cutting-edge neuroscientific research
There are many routes to mental wellbeing and award-winning neuroscientist Camilla Nord is at the forefront of finding them.
Dr Camilla Nord, leads the Mental Health Neuroscience Lab at the University of Cambridge, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, and she has a dual appointment as Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Department of Psychiatry.
Her lab investigates brain-body interactions in neuropsychiatric disorders using methods from cognitive and computational neuroscience.
The Balanced Brain by Camilla Nord offers a revelatory tour of the scientific and technological developments that are revolutionizing the way we think about mental health, showing why and how events – and treatments – can affect people in such different ways.
In The Balanced Brain Nord reframes mental health as an intricate, self-regulating process, one which is different from all of us.
She examines a huge diversity of treatments, from therapy to medication, to show how they work, and why they sometimes don’t.
In doing so, she reveals how the small things we do to lift our mood during the course of a day – a piece of chocolate, chatting to a friend – often work on the same pathways in our brain as the latest pharmacological treatments for mental health disorders.
Whether they help us to manage pain, learn from experience or expend energy on the things that are important for survival, these conscious actions are part of a complex self-regulating process that is unique to each individual and the constant backdrop to our everyday lives.
Nord shows that, with so many factors at play there are more possibilities for recovery and resilience than we might think.
The Balanced Brain is an invitation to discover pathways that make each of us feel better and to understand why.
