Absolutely astounding work by Dr. Kim Hellemans from Carleton University (Official) and the Minding the Brain Podcast and her team to produce this incredible video on addiction and reducing stigma #EndStigma #StigmaEndsWithMe #CompassionStartsWithUs Ottawa Public Health End Stigma - Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation Mental Health Commission of Canada Commission de la santé mentale du Canada Ottawa Citizen

CREDITS:

Through collaboration with Canadian Centre on Substance Use / Centre canadien sur les dépendances, CAPSA, and the amazing students at Stigma Ends at CU, they put together an incredible script, and filmed with the help of Carleton University Teaching & Learning Services. From writing to filming to scoring, the team worked incredibly hard to bring this vision to life. A huge Thank You to everyone who helped make this a reality!

Shout-out to Dr. Kim Hellemans for her work, along with everyone at CCSA, CAPSA, and Gord Garner, Olivia Turner and Isabel Mertick-Sykes of Stigma Ends at CU for their work on the script, Tai Zimmer, Greg Allison, Hasi Eldib and Paul Heuthorst in the Media Production Centre for bringing these ideas to life, Liz VandenBygaart at CAPSA for her narration, Carleton U student Diego Guzman for scoring the video with such great music, and everyone else who helped make this vision a reality.

Props for the Society for Neuroscience, Ottawa Chapter for taking up the challenge to recreate the photo!

ICYMI, earlier this week we challenged the Department of Neuroscience, Carleton University students and faculty, who are currently attending the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Chicago, to recreate a photo from a story Carleton University (Official) published last year about the SfN Ottawa Chapter’s international outreach award. 📸🥇

Neuroscience Prof. Alfonso Abizaid enthusiastically accepted our challenge, and the Society for Neuroscience, Ottawa Chapter did not disappoint! 🤩👏🏻

Thanks to the group for being great sports — we wish them safe travels home and we look forward to having them back on campus! ✈️

https://mindingthebrainpodcast.com/2019/05/01/16-social-media-addiction/

When I polled my students this semester on their social media use, the majority replied that they were distracted by social media while engaging in other activities such as their school work. This month, Jim Davies interviews me on the emerging research on social media and addiction. What do you think? Do you find yourself spending mindless hours scrolling through newsfeeds? How can we use social media "responsibly"? What does the future hold for face-to-face interactions?

As liver fat production increases (in mice), surprisingly, so does the body's ability to burn fat.

A new study demonstrates that mice fed a fattening diet develop new liver circadian rhythms that impact the way fat is accumulated and simultaneously burned.
