Psychiatric Neuroimaging employs multiple techniques to advance our understanding of brain function in health and disease.
Neuroimaging is a core component of psychiatric research. Research involving neuroimaging can point to differences in brain systems that underlie psychiatric illness, treatment response, and properties of brain function that convey risk for disease.
Neuroimaging techniques that are frequently used in psychiatry research include:
The Division of Psychiatric Neuroimaging comprises a diverse group of laboratories and affiliated initiatives that seek to understand psychiatric illness using brain imaging approaches. Our investigators study a range of psychiatric disorders across the lifespan, including developmental and adult-onset illnesses. A further strength of the program is that it serves as a nexus linking traditional academic departments with Mass General, especially for the areas of psychology and neuroscience, which have a long-standing focus on psychiatric illness.
