Delusions and the Brain: Translating Theories into Therapies - Dr. Philip Corlett

Dr. Corlett presents his proposal to clinically test whether the drug Retigabine can remedy psychotic delusions in human volunteers.

How do psychotic delusions form? How can delusions be treated at their neurobiological roots? These elusive questions may finally find an answer in the science of Philip Corlett, Ph.D. Based on evidence-supported neurocognitive theory, Dr. Corlett presents his proposal to clinically test whether the drug Retigabine can remedy psychotic delusions in human volunteers. Recorded at IMHRO's Music Festival for Mental Health 2013.

"I came to learn about IMHRO when I was working on a film about my father whose untreated schizophrenia caused such pain in our family. As a physician I knew all too well that my story was common and I knew the desperate need for greater research into this illusive disease. When I heard of the ground breaking work the Staglins were doing thru their organization IMHRO, such as research into preventing schizophrenia from ever occuring, I hoped to meet them. When I did I was amazed by their non-stop energy and complete devotion to the cause. But most of all, I was moved by their sincere desire to share ideas with people from all backgrounds and fields. As I continue to create films to inspire empathy for those with mental illness, I remain inspired by the Staglins and what IMHRO has done to transform mental health research and improve lives. "
