With a foreword read by the author.

Worldwide, depression will be the single biggest cause of disability in the next twenty years. But treatment for it has not changed much in the last three decades. In the world of psychiatry, time has apparently stood still...until now with Edward Bullmore's The Inflamed Mind: A Radical New Approach to Depression.

In this game-changing audiobook, University of Cambridge profressor of psychiatry Edward Bullmore reveals the breakthrough new science on the link between depression and inflammation of the body and brain. He explains how and why we now know that mental disorders can have their root cause in the immune system, and outlines a future revolution in which treatments could be specifically targeted to break the vicious cycles of stress, inflammation, and depression.

The Inflamed Mind goes far beyond the clinic and the lab, representing a whole new way of looking at how mind, brain, and body all work together in a sometimes misguided effort to help us survive in a hostile world. It offers insights into how we could start getting to grips with depression and other mental disorders much more effectively in the future.

Quotes & Awards

  • "Ed Bullmore provides a clearly written and compelling argument for the importance of the immune system and inflammation in depression. This lively book explains a major frontier in clinical neuroscience that is not only influencing research on depression, but also on schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease. Steven E. Hyman, Harvard University

  • An important book, a hopeful book, for anyone who wants to think about depression in a new way. Tom Insel MD, Co-founder and President, Mindstrong Health
  • The Inflamed Mind confronts the reader with the converging revolutions in neuroscience and immunology that give rise to a new perspective about depression and its treatment. It traces the roots of dualism,the tendency to view mind dissociated from body, and then calls for moving beyond dualism in order to understand how inflammation in the body affects brain and mind. In an erudite, enjoyable, and accessible way, Professor Bullmore conveys the profound impact of this new perspective by helping us to appreciate the links between traditional ‘medical’ and ‘psychiatric’ syndromes and it identifies new anti-inflammatory treatments that may cross the boundary from general medicine to psychiatry. John H. Krystal, M.D., Robert L. McNeil,Jr., Professor of Translational Research; Chair, Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine
  • As one of the first people to brand themselves as animmunopsychiatrist, Professor Bullmore has led us out of the dark ages and shone the light on the crucial link between systemic inflammation and mental illness. This set of insights is creating a paradigm shift in psychiatry which heralds a new field of personalized psychiatry in the same way that we are seeing personalized therapy in chancer. Sir Robert Lechler, President of the Medical Sciences
  • Suddenly an expert who wants to stop and question everything we thought we knew…This is a lesson in the workings of the brain far too important to ignore. –Jeremy Vine
