The Neurocognition and Emotion in Affective Disorders Centre (NEAD) aims to improve the understanding, prevention and treatment of cognitive impairment and affective disorders.
To achieve this overarching ambition, we conduct multidisciplinary research into cognitive impairments and affective disorders (depression and bipolar disorder) that aims to:
1. Identify neurocognitive and neuroimaging biomarkers of affective disorders
2. Create neurocognitive screening tools and methods to reduce the risk of affective disorders
3. Develop new biological and psychological treatments targeting cognitive impairment
4. Delineate the neurocognitive and neuronal mechanisms of established and novel treatments
