Through his research, Dr. Glahn ultimately aims to identify the genes involved in affective and psychotic illnesses, as well as genes that influence non-pathological brain structure and function. He pursues this line of research by integrating cognitive, functional, and structural neuroimaging, and molecular genetic approaches. Currently, he leads three major NIH-funded studies designed to identify genes influencing brain anatomy, physiology and cognition in randomly ascertained families or in individuals with bipolar disorder and their well siblings.
