Normal brain aging patterns occur at a faster rate in people with psychosis

February 8, 2019

Patients with psychosis have accelerated aging of two brain networks important for general cognition -- the frontoparietal network (FPN) and cingulo-opercular network (CON) -- according to a new study in Biological Psychiatry. Efficiency of the FPN network was normal in early psychosis but reduced in chronic patients, indicating that the decline happens after illness onset.

Woodward receives NIMH funding to study brain circuitry as it relates to psychosis

June 6, 2018

Neil Woodward, Ph.D., associate professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, was recently awarded NIMH funding to study the development of brain circuits underlying cognitive function in healthy individuals and youth at risk for developing psychosis.  Serving as oo-principal investigator alongside Dr. Woodward is Alan Anticevic, Ph.D., at Yale University.
