Prof. Dr. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg

Psychiatry, Neuroscience

The research interests of Prof. Meyer-Lindenberg focus on the development of novel treatments for severe psychiatric disorders, especially schizophrenia, through an application of multimodal neuroimaging, genetics and enviromics to characterize brain circuits underlying the risk for mental illness and cognitive dysfunction.
