Our research uses brain imaging to study the function and organization of neural circuits in a range of psychiatric disorders

Our laboratory uses multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study the organization and function of neural circuits underlying symptoms seen in a range of psychiatric disorders affecting children and adolescents. By combining brain imaging with treatment studies, our research aims to understand the mechanisms underlying symptoms such as impulsivity, inattention, emotional lability, and anxiety. Moreover, we aim to identify how treatments work so that new treatments can be developed that are more targeted and effective than those currently available.
