About the series

Psychologist Claudia Hammond presents All in the Mind - the series that explores new ideas in how we think and behave. The programmes explore three aspects of human behaviour: issues in the delivery of mental health services, from new schemes to help service users to the side effects of drugs; the latest neuroscience research, from multimillion pound projects to map the brain to the human stories of having your brain studied; and new ideas in psychology, such as research into memory or into phobias.

The programmes feature interviews with academic researchers, mental health practitioners, and people with psychological issues.

Catch up with the Winter 2015/2016 series and Winter 2014/2015 series

The first episode of the new series of All in the Mind airs on Tuesday 26th April at 9.00 PM and is repeated on Wednesdays at 3.30 PM.  Full broadcast details and listen again links can be found on bbc.co.uk
