Brain Basics

Changes in the brain can lead to mental disorders, such as depression. Brain Basics, from NIH's National Institute of Mental Health, provides information on how the brain works, how mental illnesses are disorders of the brain, and ongoing research that helps us better understand and treat disorders.

Brain Basics will introduce you to some of this science, such as:

  • How the brain develops
  • How genes and the environment affect the brain
  • The basic structure of the brain
  • How different parts of the brain communicate and work with each other
  • How changes in the brain can lead to mental disorders, such as depression.
