Event Details: Neuroscience Lecture Series: The Next Generation of Brain Imaging Studies for Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Their Real-World Relevance | Bradley Peterson, M.D., Columbia University

Description:

The Next Generation of Brain Imaging Studies for Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Their Real-World Relevance

Bradley Peterson, M.D.
Professor, Columbia University

Brain imaging is simply a tool, a technique. It does not provide scientifically privileged data, it alone cannot generate valid findings, and it cannot substitute for good study design. In most studies designs, imaging provides only correlational data and cannot inform us about the mechanisms of pathogenesis or treatment response. The next generation of imaging studies will increasingly yoke brain imaging to studies with designs that can provide greater causal inference for brain-based disease mechanisms and treatment responses, such as epidemiologicalstudies, longitudinal studies, high risk samples, and randomized clinical trials. Examples of each and their relevance to understanding disease mechanisms and informing real-world clinical care will be provided.




This event is part of the Neuroscience & Education program's Spring 2013 Neuroscience Lecture Series. Some of the most accomplished investigators in neuroscience from top universities in the NYC area will be presenting new developments in their leading-edge research on the frontiers of neuroscience.
