ION CHANNEL GENETICS IN MENTAL HEALTH: ASSOCIATED INTEGRATIVE THERAPIES

ION CHANNEL GENETICS IN MENTAL HEALTH: ASSOCIATED INTEGRATIVE THERAPIES

30.00

LAUREN FEW, PHD

Several studies have implicated genetic mutations in voltage-gated ion channels in the pathogenesis of mental health disorders. For example, both the CACNA1C calcium channel gene and ANK3 gene have been linked to bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression in genome-wide association studies. This talk will focus on a number of integrative therapeutic options that target ion channels and have demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of mental health symptomatology, including omega-3 fatty acids, lithium, magnesium, and N-acetylcysteine.
