Integrated Understanding of Causes and Mechanisms in Mental Disorders - IntegraMent

The IntegraMent Consortium aims to apply an integrated approach to elucidate the causal biological pathways and networks of common neuropsychiatric diseases, and to make a decisive contribution to deciphering their etiological mechanisms. In the subproject “Transdiagnostic neurocognitive biomarkers for the major psychoses” we investigate the neurogenetic causes, differences, and similarities of the three major psychiatric disease groups schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and unipolar (depressive) affective disorder with the aim to identify brain characteristics that show association with these illnesses and their complex genetic causes. The consortium is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, 2013-2018). For further information see here.
