Developing and translating novel PET methods for the study of neurodevelopment and neuropsychiatric illness.

Research Description:

Our research focuses on developing and translating novel PET methods for the study of neuropsychiatric illness. This involves using PET methodologies to investigate neurochemical changes in the brain and studying novel radioligands to characterize neurotransmitter-protein interactions and how they are influenced by the effects of psychotropic drugs. These imaging methods are being applied to investigate the etiologies and mechanisms in diseases such as affective disorders, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease and Tourette syndrome.
