Hjerneavbildning ved psykose

Gruppen forsker på psykoselidelser, med fokus på etiologi, nevroanatomi og tidlige risikofaktorer. Gruppen undersøker strukturelle hjerneforandringer, hvordan de oppstår og hvordan de utvikler seg over tid ved psykoselidelser.

Dr. Claudia Barth is a biologist by training, with a PhD in Neuroscience. For the past 10 years, she has worked at the front-line of biomedical research by exploring the effects of hormonal transition periods on mental illnesses and the brain, using dense-sampling approaches, large population-based datasets, and machine learning tools in collaborative, international and multidisciplinary research environments. Her academic interests are driven by the aim to understand how naturally occurring brain dynamics across hormonal transition periods, particularly in females, contribute to disease. She is the PI of the FemHealth Project and serves as Co-Chair of the ENIGMA Early Onset Psychosis Working Group and Chair of the ENIGMA Neuroendocrinology Working Group – Menopause Section, to foster global research collaborations on these topics. Furthermore, she co-founded the Women’s NeuroNetwork to enhance collaboration and academic excellence among neuroscientists who identify as women, and to actively combat known gender imbalances in academia.
