  • The History of Bipolar Disorder: An Untold Story | Dr. Manuel Sánchez de Carmona | EP 39 🏛️
    Dec 8 2023

    Over 2,400 years ago, Greek physician Hippocrates first detailed symptoms of "opposite" mood states - what we now understand as mania and depression. Throughout the Middle Ages and into the modern era, vivid descriptions of melancholy and euphoria continued to surface, drawing focus to a set of distinct symptoms that appeared to occur in cycles. In this special talkBD episode, psychiatrist Dr. Manuel Sánchez de Carmona dives through centuries of evidence to uncover the fascinating story of manic-depression - and how we've come to know the condition today as "bipolar disorder".
