My goal is to identify the mechanisms by which genetic risk for complex brain disorders increase susceptibility. Using in vivo measure such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we map the neural circuits that are altered in heritable disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I assess how common genetic variants (those identified via GWAS) affect these brain circuits in healthy individuals.
