Sweating the small stuff: Early adversity, prior depression linked to high sensitivity to stress

We all know people who are able to roll with life's punches, while for others, every misfortune is a jab straight to the gut. Research examining this issue has found that although most people require significant adversity to become depressed — the death of a loved one, say, or getting fired — roughly 30 percent of people with first-time depression and 60 percent of people with a history of depression develop the disorder following relatively minor misfortunes. But no one knew why. Now, a new study led by UCLA researchers suggests that people become depressed more easily following minor life stress in part because they have experienced early life adversity or prior depressive episodes, both of which may make people more sensitive to later life stress.

Mindfulness, Neuroscience and Creativity: An Interactive Exploration.

Join us at MARC for a special event where we bring together artists, musicians, media makers, meditators, and neuroscientists for a half day exploring the interface of mindfulness and creativity. The day will include musical performances, meditations, a discussion on the neuroscience of creativity, a digital "animeditation," Tibetan singing bowls, and personal creative expression. We will specifically examine the effects of meditation on creativity, art, and the brain.

Cost: $50

Discounts: $25 UCLA Students; $45 UCLA Staff; $40 student & seniors; $45 Fifty Plus Program & KCRW subscriber
