Neuroimaging in Psychiatry

The general aim of my research is to understand the neural basis of psychiatric disorders. We focus on what makes someone vulnerable to the development of psychiatric disorders, on how various treatments exert their effect, and on the development of neuroimaging biomarkers that predict clinical outcome. To address these questions, we combine noninvasive neuroimaging techniques with psychological, pharmacological, and neurostimulation treatments, and with machine learning data analysis techniques.
