Recent Publications

March 2018 - Congratulations to Drs. Doucet, Frangou, and Rasgon for

"Multivariate Associations Among Behavioral, Clinical, and Multimodal Imaging Phenotypes in Patients With Psychosis," recently published in JAMA Psychiatry.


"Alterations in multiple neuroimaging phenotypes have been reported in psychotic disorders. However, neuroimaging masures can be influenced by factors that are not directly related to psychosis and may confound the interpretation of case-control differences. Therefore, a detailed characterization of the contribution of these factors to neuroimaging phenotypes in psychosis is warranted."

March 2018 - Congratulations to Dr. Singh and Dr. Rasgon for "Brain and behavioral correlates of insulin resistance in youth with
depression and obesity" in press in Hormones and Behaviors.


"We posit that, in the context of depressive symptoms, insulin resistance is associated
with aberrant structure and functional connectivity in the Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) and hippocampus."
