Cognitive Neuropsychiatry

​Recently, Halligan & David (2001) outlined what is currently one of the most exciting research areas: Cognitive neuropsychiatry. This framework aims to explain clinical characteristics of psychiatric disorders such as dementia or schizophrenia in terms of deficits to normal cognitive mechanisms and to link these deficits to brain structures. This approach might profoundly change the understanding and treatment of psychiatric disorders and establish a scientific psychopathology. Accordingly, our research group investigates the neural correlates of various psychiatric and neurological disorders and their symptoms.
