Despite major advances in the understanding of brain abnormalities associated with mental disorders in the past two decades, the long term outcome of the major disorders remains only marginally better than a century ago.

One problem is that most abnormalities can only be demonstrated convincingly in groups rather than individuals. However a growing body of evidence from our own studies and from others demonstrates that combining information from several sources does provide clinically useful information in individual cases.

The time is ripe for demonstrating application of neuroscientific advances in routine clinical practice. The Centre for Translational Neuroimaging in Mental Health is led by Professor Peter Liddle.

The Centre for Translational Neuroimaging in Mental Health aims to translate the wealth of information about the function of the human mind and brain derived from neuroscience and neuroimaging into clinically relevant applications.
