Second Youdim Lecture with Prof. Helen S.Mayberg, MD of Emory University.

Professor Moussa Youdim is internationally renowned for his development of drugs to treat depressive illnesses and neurodegenerative diseases.

This year's lecture will be held on Monday, May 21 in Jerusalem. Our invited speaker this year is Prof. Helen S. Mayberg, MD of Emory University.

Professor Mayberg's topic will be "Rethinking depression and its treatment:  Insights from studies of Deep Brain stimulation."
