Description

Investigating the brain basis of autism, schizophrenia and dementia

Research into the brain basis of neuropsychiatric conditions can use clues to identify which brain regions are implicated, based on the known relationships between brain structure and function.

Using human brain tissue donations as well as live brain scanning, in Oxford University we are conducting research into the brain architecture of basic sensory processing and higher cognitive functions which are disrupted in these neuropsychiatric conditions. This talk describes recent developments that will fuel current and future neurobiological and clinical research, including potential new biomarkers and neuroimaging technology.
