Division of Psychiatric Neuroimaging

The Division of Psychiatric Neuroimaging (PNI) is active in neuropsychiatric research using imaging methods such as MRI, fMRI, PET and DTI to understand the mechanisms and brain networks underlying human cognition. PNI faculty have published hundreds of papers on a variety of brain disorders which include but are not limited to Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. Faculty in the division have been awarded numerous peer-reviewed grants by the National Institutes of Health, foundations and other funding organizations.

The Division collaborates with researchers at the Kennedy-Krieger Institute, the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Imaging, the Center for Imaging Science at the Johns Hopkins School of Engineering, the Sheppard Pratt Health System, and the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. PNI faculty members train undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-doctoral fellows, providing a unique training opportunity to conduct basic and translational research in a clinical setting.

Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Core

Neuroimaging approaches provide a continuously expanding suite of tools to examine brain networks foundational to cognition, cognitive impairment and neuropsychiatry. Principal investigators increasingly aim to add neuroimaging methods to their research particularly given the recent focus on multidisciplinary approaches to questions in neuroscience and psychiatry. Although online resources as well as national training courses exist, the complexity of both experimental design and image analysis methods as well as the computational resources required for the implementation of such methods are often beyond the means of an individual investigator.

Our Mission: To provide neuroimaging expertise and support to DPBS investigators who are interested in incorporating neuroimaging methods into their research.

The Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Core provides investigators with local expertise in experimental design, implementation, data collection, data analysis as well as preparation of results for grant submissions, progress reports or publications. Services range from consultation on specific design or analysis questions to the design, implementation of complete neuroimaging experiments including data processing, analysis and reporting in support of a PI’s research or application for support.
