Neuroimaging of mental disorders Òscar Vilarroya

The Neuroimaging Research Group is a multidisciplinary research group with the objective of studying the neuroanatomical and neurofunctional bases of specific mental and neurological disorders, as well as specific cognitive, emotional and motivational functions among the general population, using structural and functional magnetic resonance techniques. At present, GREEN has the following research lines active in neuroimaging:

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and other impulsivity disorders

1. Cerebral circuits of distress and motivation, joint laxity and poor response to methylphenidate in childhood ADHD. More

2. Structural and functional magnetic resonance neuroimaging of executive cognitive functions and motivation in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in adults. More

3. Volumetric anomalies of the caudate nucleus in paediatric ADHD: Evaluation of structural magnetic resonance as a complementary diagnostic test. More

Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders

4. Personality endophenotypes in schizophrenia: A neuroimaging study. More

Anxiety disorders

5. Neuroanatomical correlates of Panic Disorder in adolescents Functional neuroimaging study. More


6. Neurofunctional changes in patients with depression related to temporal lobe epilepsy. More
