Investigating Phytochemicals to Improve Brain Function
About this webinar
Join Dr. Katrina Green PhD, a neuropharmacologist from the University of Wollongong, Australia, as she explores the medicinal potential of phytochemicals in improving brain function. Dr. Green PhD will discuss her research aimed at the pharmacological treatment of brain illness by harnessing the vast medicinal potential within the phytochemicals found in the cannabis plant.
With over 600 compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, cannabis offers a rich array of bioactive molecules that hold promise in addressing a myriad of neurological and psychiatric conditions. From deficits in learning and memory to the complex manifestations of depression, anxiety, and psychosis, these phytochemicals exhibit diverse therapeutic properties that could redefine the landscape of brain health interventions.
Her research sheds light on the intricate mechanisms through which these compounds interact with the brain's physiology, offering new avenues for targeted therapeutic interventions with the potential to significantly improve patient outcomes.
