Study of the brain correlates of different mental disorders and their most relevant symptoms, at an anatomical and functional level, through the use of advanced magnetic resonance techniques that include the analysis of alterations in cortical morphology, white matter integrity and functionality both during the idle state and during the performance of tasks.
Computational techniques and developments in artificial intelligence (AI) have a noticeable impact on biomedical research and it is expected that, in the future, it will significantly transform daily clinical practice through personalized medicine.
The integration of genetic and genomic data with different neurobiological and clinical markers represents one of the main challenges for advancing in knowledgement of the causes of psychiatric disorders.
In recent years, new technologies and the processing of a large amount of information (big data) have been incorporated into biomedicine, which are managing to answer questions of great medical relevance.
This research area aims to evaluate aspects of the state and care of patients and their families, as well as health professionals. It has an eminently practical interest.
Having appropriate and approved ladders and other evaluation instruments is essential for daily clinical practice and conducting research studies.
Clinical trials are the mechanism for appropriately determining the safety and efficacy of new therapeutic approaches.
This area of research seeks to establish whether there is evidence of neuropathologies associated with dementia, specifically newly discovered dementias in schizophrenia.
