Cognitive Neuropsychiatry

Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Igor Nenadic

Our lab uses structural and functional MRI to study the neurobiological underpinnings of mental disorders, in particular schizophrenia and affective disorders. A major focus is the use of advanced MR morphometry to study regional brain volumes, as well as parameters of the cortical surface, e.g. gyrification. In addition, we use genetic markers to link variation in candidate genes and polygenic risk scores to brain structure and function. A third focus is the analysis of phenotypic risk features, for example schizotypy, in relation to brain MRI markers.

We welcome students for both internships as well as research projects.
