The average time to recognition of bipolar disorder is about 10 years, with many youngsters not having the advantage of appropriate treatment.  This is due to many factors including the difficulty in identifying clinically subtle indicators of bipolarity and the frequency of comorbidity with anxiety and substance use disorders.  Descriptions of clinical strategies and pointers for the application of DSM-5 criteria will be discussed.

It’s commonly said that “you are what you eat.” These days, we tend to mean that if you consume the right foods, containing the right nutrients, you’ll tend to be healthy and live long. But some centuries ago, other sensibilities were available that helped define the nature and causes of human character, individual and collective. In his talk, Dr. Shapin discusses one of the more familiar examples of this analogical and causal mode of reasoning in the period from the 16th to the 18th centuries—why beef-eating made the English who they were.
