PsyDactic

T. Ryan O'Leary

A resource for psychiatrists and other medical or behavioral health professionals interested in exploring the neuroscientific basis of psychiatric disorders, psychopharmacology, neuromodulation, and other psychiatric interventions, as well as discussions of pseudoscience, Bayesian reasoning, ethics, the history of psychiatry, and human psychology in general.

This podcast is not medical advice.  It strives to be science communication.  Dr. O'Leary is a skeptical thinker who often questions what we think we know.  He hopes to open more conversations about what we don't know we don't know.
