202110.29 Measuring mental-health change: brain, physiology, and gene (Human Brain Science Seminar) Posted in RESEARCH

The mind and body are closely related. How can we define and measure their health? In the 15th Human Brain Science Seminar, we discussed its present and future from three aspects: brain activity, physiological indices, and gene expression. It has become apparent that the concept of health itself is diversely defined at different levels of representation and measurement, and that examining the relationships between these levels is an important issue.
