The work of NTTR SIG member falls in one or more of the following interconnected areas:
Understanding the mechanisms of a) psychiatric disorders and/or b) interventions
Prediction, i.e., neuroprediction and/or treatment allocation
Direct intervention through a) development of neuroscience informed cognitive interventions and/or b) augmentation of existing interventions
Mechanisms of symptoms and disorders
Drs. Simpson, Van Den Heuvel & Gendanke Shavitt talk about their research on OCD biosignatures through neuroimaging to further understand the mechanisms of the disorder (watch video).
Mechanisms of intervention
Dr. Kym Young explains her focus on intervention, how her research combines neurofeedback and CBT to help recognize positive information and learn the principles of CBT (watch video).
Mechanisms of individual differences in treatment success
Dr. Tali Ball explains her studies on individual differences to determine if exposure therapy will be successful or not (watch video).
Identify biomarkers of treatment success
Researcher Francesca Morfini talks about the use of neuroimaging techniques to discover biomarkers that improve the diagnostic process (watch video).
Identify biomarkers to inform treatment allocation
Dr. Claire Gillian talks about getting the right treatment to the right people (watch video).
Augmentation of existing interventions
Dr. Greg Siegle explains the importance of researching intervention augmentation such as Cognitive Control Training in addition to CBT for people with depression (watch video).
Novel neuroscience-informed interventions
Drs. Angela Fang and Sabine Wilhelm explain how their neuroscience based research translates to the clinic (watch video)
