Title: From Monkeys to Children: What Nonhuman Primates Can Teach Us About Psychiatric Disorders​

We all experience anxiety throughout our lifetime, which can be helpful for preparing us to take on challenges but debilitating when it becomes overwhelming and constant. Dr. Margaux Kenwood presented her research focused on childhood anxiety and associated changes in the brain using a nonhuman primate animal model. Her talk explored how different animal models can help us pave the way for better psychiatric interventions.
