Heritability of Brain Structures

Jo Knight, Dr Mallar Chakravarty (Computational Neuroscientist, Brain Imaging Centre, Douglas Institute) and graduate student Sejal Patel have been examining the heritability of different structures in the brain. The work has been published in Human Brain Mapping and Neuroimage.

Jo has also worked with Mario Masellis and Usman Saeed looking at specific genetic influences on brain structure, published in Alzheimers and Dementia.

Finally she was involved in a study looking at the ability to classify patients based on brain structure, published in Schizophrenia Research.
