The Origins of Psychiatric Disease

Principal Investigator John Gabrieli

Neuroimaging can also yield new insights into psychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. Gabrieli has collaborated extensively with colleagues at McLean Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital to examine abnormal patterns of activity in the brains of psychiatric patients. In the future he plans to combine neuroimaging with genetic studies in order to understand how genes and environmental factors interact within the brain to produce psychiatric disease.
