About the Project
The ENIGMA Antisocial Behavior initiative will focus on data covering the entire lifespan; this includes structural and functional MRI data on Conduct Problems/Disorder in youths, as well as Antisocial Personality Disorder/Psychopathy in adults (http://enigma.ini.usc.edu/ongoing/enigma-antisocial-behavior/). Analyses will not only be focused on disorders and categorical approaches, but also dimensional approaches where neuroimaging/genetics data that can be linked to dimensional measures indexing externalizing behaviors and environmental risk factors (e.g., early childhood adversity) in both clinical/forensic and community samples. The student working on this project will have the opportunity to liaise and network with researchers across the globe. There will be opportunities for training at the ENIGMA headquarter at the University of Southern California as well as with our ENIGMA collaborators in the Netherlands. The project will combine and train the student in methods from psychology, neuroimaging, and computer/data science, which together will put this project at the forefront of research on antisocial behaviour.
Techniques that will be undertaken during the project:
Advanced multivariate analyses (e.g., machine learning)
Structural and functional MRI
Meta-analysis and mega-analysis of MRI data
