Parent Episode: Dr. Charles Raison on Depression, the Immune-Brain Interface & Whole-Body Hyperthermia

People experiencing depression or schizophrenia tend to have impaired thermoregulation, causing difficulties with sweating and cooling themselves off. Using heat exposure, investigators were able to sensitize pathways important to thermoregulatory cooling that also affect brain regions implicated in the regulation of mood. In this clip, Dr. Charles Raison explains the relationship between thermoregulatory dysfunction and how periodic exposure to high heat may aid with treating depression and schizophrenia.
