PBS 科普节目: Ride the Tiger: A Guide Through the Bipolar Brain

Post by Jun » 2016-04-13 20:55

在电视上看见这个节目,里面急速地提到了一大堆话题: unipolar depression, bipolar disorder, ECT, DBS, TMS, ketamine, bipolar genetics ...

有兴趣的同学请注意查看当地的 PBS 节目表。也可以在网上看:

忽然有种老朋友重逢的感觉,节目里提到的话题,大部分我都给精神科学报报道过,节目里采访的科学家/医生,不少我也采访过,例如 Helen Mayberg, Sarah Lisenby, Carlos Zarate。这个节目做得非常拥挤,把一大堆东西扔进去,细节不严谨,没分清 unipolar 和 bipolar 的区别(例如 ketamine 只对 depression 有效而不是 bipolar,提到 bipolar 基因研究却没有提到 schizophrenia 跟它的重叠)。总的来说涉猎太广而缺乏深度,最让我腹诽的是对于 ECT 的解释又短又不准确。但是,作为一个简略的概述还是挺值得一看的。
