Research Summary:

Many severe psychiatric disorders and complex behaviours are highly heritable. We investigate genetic variation associated with risk for disorders such as schizophrenia, depression and autism and behavioural phenomena such as attachment or impulsive violence in a translational approach, with an emphasis on multimodal neuroimaging to identify neural systems mediating genetic risk. The ultimate goal is the construction of a neural risk architecture of the studied target behaviour as guide for the discovery and evaluation of novel treatment strategies.
