Psychosis and Neuropsychiatry

The Psychosis and Neuropsychiatry research theme of the NIHR Maudsley BRC brings together world leading experts in psychosis and neuropsychiatry (including psychiatrists, psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists). 

Neuropsychiatric disorders include the most severe forms of mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders, and neurological diseases of the brain which are often accompanied by psychiatric symptoms.  

This research theme aims to develop new and repurposed methodologies and treatments for these disorders, with particular focus on the therapeutic potentials offered by transdiagnostic features and the interface between mental and physical health.

Theme Leads: Professor Philip McGuire and Professor Ammar Al-Chalabi
