Main focus of our research is in the pathophysiology and therapy of psychiatric disorders like affective disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia. Using multimodal neuroimaging techniques, genetics, epigenetics, behavioural investigations and neuropsychological examinations we examine, how stress or other environmental factors interact with genetics on the structural and functional integrity of the brain in order to understand the underlying neurobiological processes. Moreover, another goal is to identify markers for therapy guidance and for therapy evaluation and to investigate the neuroplastic brain changes during therapy like psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy or behavioural activation. Other projects deal with early detection of psychiatric diseases.
