The Australian National University Channel features interesting educational videos about numerous subjects including Psychiatry. One of the videos (with a creative commons license) is given by Psychiatry Professor Philip Mitchell (see above). In this video he talks about a study he has initiated looking at the offspring of people with Bipolar Disorder where the researchers are trying to understand more about the factors predicting conversion. However Professor Mitchell also takes the time to summarise some of the Genome Wide Association Studies as well as taking a closer look at individual gene candidates which are associated with an increased risk of Bipolar Disorder.
