Virology and Bipolar Disorder
PIs: Susan Bassett, PhD
in collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Payne
IRB # 05-03-28-02
The aim of this study is to examine hemodynamic activation (using fMRI) in a group of individuals with bipolar disorder and HSV-1 infection in order to better understand the pathologic mechanism involved in cognition in bipolar disorder and, perhaps more importantly, identify a population of individuals with the disease for whom anti-viral intervention may ameliorate a substantial burden of disease and disability.

Neuroimaging in Bipolar Disorder
PIs: Susan Bassett, PhD and John Little, MD
IRB # 02-10-11-01
This study is funded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute. The aim of this study is to use neuro-imaging to help refine bipolar phenotypes, which may further the identification of genes related to bipolar disorder, assist with understanding treatment response, and provide clues about disease etiology.
