Welcome to the Neuropsychiatry Section
The Neuropsychiatry program of the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Psychiatry is devoted to the study of brain and behavior in health and disease. By integrating methodologies we aim to advance the understanding and treatment of complex brain disorders such as schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders.
We combine clinical assessment procedures with neurobehavioral measures, neuroimaging, electrophysiology and genomics. Clinical research is linked to basic research by using animal models and biomarkers. The research involves working with individuals and families over time to help understand changes and treatments. We are especially interested in factors that contribute to vulnerability to psychosis as well as those that add to resilience in young people.

This annual educational activity is made possible through the Blanche Prince and Harry Stern Memorial Fund. Attendees have the opportunity to learn about our program, meet faculty and staff, and ask questions concerning psychosis research and treatment. Mental health consumers and family members will find this program valuable. Psychiatrists, mental health professionals, students, social workers, and psychologists will also benefit from attending.
