Project Description

In recent years there has been considerable research interest in detecting individuals at clinical high risk for the development of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia. These individuals are usually help-seeking, with symptoms similar to those seen in clinical psychosis but less severe in intensity and/or frequency. Around 20-30% of these individuals develop a psychotic disorder over subsequent months, but there is now growing interest in also examining the outcomes of those who do not develop psychosis, many of whom have mood or anxiety disorders and continue to show poor social and occupational functioning.
In this project, the student would join an already existing line of research studying young people at risk for psychosis, and would aim to better understand the clinical, demographic, and neuroimaging features that predict non-psychotic outcomes in these individuals.
