A Bit of Hiatus

Hi there. Yes, it has been a while. I am spending several hours each day working on the book, so other writing has taken a back seat for the moment. In addition, I am preparing for the upcoming American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting in San Francisco, where I will be presenting as part of a group on food and the brain (on Sunday afternoon, before the Clinton speech, for anyone who will be there). My next talk after that will be in Arlington, VA, as I have graciously been asked to be a (far less glamorous and much shorter) speaking substitute for the Melissa half of Whole9Life for the summer of Melissa's maternity leave. You can get tickets for the talk here. I'll be adding a bit on the psychology of change and sleep cycles to the general Whole9 information.

Sometime in the next week or so I will have a new (or new-ish) post on Psychology Today. And you never know what will happen if a white-hot paper comes to my attention.

In the meantime, have a lovely spring. Keep checking back, and as always I'm still far too talkative on twitter.


  1. Good luck on your book and speaking engagements! I thought of your blog yesterday when I came across a new publication:

    Gut–brain axis: how the microbiome influences anxiety and depression

    This type of research intrigues me - I wondered if you had read it yet, and if so, what are your thoughts?? How do we know which are good/bad bacteria, parasites, etc.? What do these results mean for treatment protocols for mood disorders (if nothing formal yet, then at least experimentally)?

  2. Thank you for sharing. Will you talk about your presentation on food and the brain on here? I am just curious because I am very interested in said topic. Please let me know, thanks!

  3. Very ambitious, I like it. How's the book coming along?


  4. Hi! Just came across your blog when I was Googling for any possible connections between wheat/gluten and bipolar disorder. I read a post of yours from a couple of years ago, at which point it seems like there weren't a lot of studies done on this. Is there anything that you could point me to that's more up-to-date?
