Find the brain chemical ‘fingerprints’ of mental illness
The diagnosis and mental illness and subsequently assessing how successful treatment is being is very challenging. This is largely because mental illnesses such as depression have a wide range of subjective symptoms. In this project we are looking at how we can measure brain chemistry using a non-invasive Magnetic Resonance scanner and using this information to search for the unique ‘fingerprints’ of mental illness.
