“Rhythms of the Psyche”
Ronald M. Salomon, MD, FAPA
Sponsor: Summit Behavioral Healthcare
We still know relatively little about body/brain clocks and rhythms. As we learn more, we can help patients learn about and better manage their daily rhythms.
The talk will only touch on sleep hygiene, while offering greater in depth information about brain activity rhythms to aid the clinician. Hypotheses will be offered that may integrate our knowledge about brain rhythm activities with diagnostic and treatment issues. Clinical applications will be emphasized.
Dr. Salomon has practiced psychiatry privately in Nashville since returning in 2018. In academic positions for over 30 years, he has taught in a wide variety of clinical settings with an emphasis on Consultation-Liaison psychiatry. His research focused on the neurobiology and treatment of depression and other psychiatric disorders, beginning at Yale and continuing at Vanderbilt, Northwestern, and most recently the University of Arkansas. The work focused on understanding rhythms in brain activities by collecting and analyzing data in time series. He wrote, or contributed to, over forty peer-reviewed scientific publications on depression, serotonin chronobiology and other topics. He is also an avid reader of psychiatric works, with over twenty published book reviews.
Dr Salomon studied Biology as an undergraduate at MIT, where he completed an undergraduate thesis in myelin neuroimmunology. He studied medicine at the University of Liège, Belgium and completed his psychiatry residency at the University of Connecticut. He is Board Certified in Psychiatry and has held a subspecialty board certification in Psychosomatic Medicine. Dr Salomon lives with his wife and a grand-dog, enjoys his children and a grand-daughter, photography, music, and woodworking.
