Developing Clinical Researchers in Neuropsychiatric Imaging

Developing Clinical Researchers in Neuropsychiatric Imaging is a training program originally funded by the NIMH (2 R25 MH06047) to train scientists in functional neuroimaging and cognitive/affective neuroscientific methods, and their application to the study of pathophsyiology of psychiatric disorders.
