This course presents novel discoveries in the field of psychiatry through the lens of neuroimaging experiments. The main human brain imaging research techniques (fMRI, DTI, PET) are first introduced both from a theoretical and practical perspective through image analysis labs. Secondly, the course reviews key functional and structural changes in the human brain in psychiatric disorders such as major depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and autism, and informs on current and future treatment alternatives.
