There is not much room for doubt that inflammation is associated with depression and other mental health disorders. However, there are many open questions about the causal relationships that might explain the increasing mass of largely correlational findings. In this somewhat speculative talk, I will explore the idea that early life adversity and other social stressors could epigenetically reprogramme immune response and brain developmental trajectories leading to long-term changes in vulnerability to depression and other mental health disorders in adult life.

This talk is part of the Making connections- brains and other complex systems series.
