Psychiatric, Psychotherapeutic, and Psychosomatic Colloquium


We can once again offer you a varied program this semester. This time we will illuminate the mental clinical picture of depression more closely, looking at it as a cognitive disease and through the lens of therapy with psychedelics or neuromodulation procedures. Furthermore, we will examine the influence of sleep or microbiome function on psychological disorders and present the current state of PET research and EKT treatment.
