“Neurobiology of affective disorders: A translational perspective on brain structure and function”

Logo FOR2107

Affective disorders, i.e. major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar disorder (BD), are complex and heterogeneous phenotypes. Genetic and environmental risk factors contribute to and interact with their etiology and the longitudinal course. The neurobiological correlates by which these predispositions exert their influence on brain structure and function are poorly understood. The aims of this Research Unit (FOR; DFG Forschergruppe) are to integrate clinical and neurobiological associations of genetic and environmental risk factors and their interaction involved in the etiology, onset and course of affective disorders.
