• Neuroimaging techniques
    For the first two years the network activities centred on structural magnetic resonance imaging.

  • Neural correlates of diagnostic specificity
    The network is using a number of techniques to identify common and specific correlates of diagnostic entities, particularly in affective disorders.

  • Genotype-phenotype interactions
    The network will investigate the relationship between extended phenotypes (clinical, cognitive, brain structural) and their relationship to risk conferring genes and explore their interaction with psychotropic medication.

  • Methods
    The network has pursued a number of methodological approaches including meta-analyses, retrospective harmonisation of structural data, pooled volumetric analyses and assessment of gyrification.
