Areas of interest

We pursue three inter-related research directions:

  • Computational psychiatry
    We work on a cross-species approach to define computational-behavioural biomarkers that predict how psychosis patients respond to treatment.
  • Neural circuits
    We study neural circuit mechanisms of psychosis-like perception to find new treatment targets for psychosis.
  • Immune signals
    We investigate how immune signals contribute to psychotic symptoms to identify new biological mechanisms underlying psychosis.
