Our Projects

PRONIA-STUDY

PRONIA "Personalized Prognostic Tools for Early Psychosis Management" is a research project funded by the European Union to significantly improving the early detection of psychotic illness. The project aims to produce an easily accessible prognostic service for early illness detection. This forecasting system will use clinical information, cognitive data, neuroimaging, and DNA, RNA, and metabolomics.

PRONIA is comprised by a professional, motivated, and international team who develop computer models that can assess the risk of psychosis development, illness outcomes, and a range of other critical diagnostic and prognostic endpoints. In the future, these procedures will help doctors and psychologists to better assess and treat the course of the disease. For more information on this project, see PRONIA.

PNKT-STUDY

PNKT "Personalized neuro-cognitive training in depression and psychosis (high risk)" is a project in which researchers are working on the development of personalized neuro-cognitive therapies based on an individualized stratification of the risk for psychosis and a reduced functional level.

In the PNKT study, patients participate in a detailed clinical, neuro-cognitive, and imaging survey, followed by several weeks of computer-assisted cognitive training. Participation in the study ends with a follow-up examination. On the basis of multivariate pattern analyses, it is hoped that it will be possible to determine which data patterns are best for predicting whether and under what conditions a patient will benefit from cognitive training.

CIP-STUDY

CIP - Cannabis-induced psychosis - is a DFG-funded study aiming to identifying individuals with cannabis-induced psychosis at an early stage and, in the context of a longitudinal imaging study, to find out in which affected individuals the psychotic symptoms remit spontaneously after abstinence and which patients are likely to develop a permanent form of psychosis.

In the CIP study, patients with cannabis-induced psychosis are tested for baseline and follow-up after 9 months by clinical and neuropsychological tests, as well as by using structural, functional and molecular imaging. The data is then evaluated by multivariate pattern analysis to identify brain patterns associated with clinical and neuropsychological variables.

TYPIA-STUDY

TYPIA is a DFG-funded bicentric study conducted at the University of Bonn and the LMU Hospital in Munich. The aim of the study is to find out why not all people with highly pronounced schizotypic personality traits develop psychosis and the factors that protect against the development of psychosis. The project is based on observations of that suggest a continuum of psychosis symptoms between the individuals with no symptoms and populations of patients with psychosis.

Within the framework of TYPIA, test persons with high positive or negative schizotypic characteristics, control subjects with low schizotypic characteristics, and patients suffering from psychosis for the first time in the last three years are examined. The age range for all groups is between 18 and 40 years. The participation includes examinations of personality, cognition, DNA, a clinical interview, as well as images of brain structure and function using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
