A discussion of the role of inflammation of the brain – known as neuroinflammation – in diseases like dementia and depression, how it contributes to disease progression and how our ever-growing knowledge on the inflammatory process can lead to potential treatments.

Inflammation is our body’s natural response to injury and stress. However, inflammation of the brain – known as neuroinflammation – has been recognised and linked to many disorders including depression, psychosis and dementia.

Join our team in a discussion of the role of neuroinflammation in these diseases, how it contributes to disease progression, and how our ever-growing knowledge on the inflammatory process can lead to potential treatments.
