Adolescent risk for developing psychosis
February 13, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Distinguished Lecturer Feb 13 at MIND Institute
(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) – Deanna Barch from Washington University in St. Louis will present “Adolescent risk for developing psychosis” at the UC Davis MIND Institute on Wednesday, Feb. 13 as part of the ongoing Distinguished Lecturer Series. The hour-long presentation will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the MIND Institute Auditorium, 2825 50th St. in Sacramento, followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session.
The event is free to the public and no reservations are required; however, seating is limited.
Barch is chair of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and the Gregory Couch Chair of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis. She is deputy editor of Biological Psychiatry and serves on the editorial boards of Schizophrenia Bulletin, Journal of Abnormal Psychology and Clinical Psychological Science. Barch is on the scientific boards of the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation and the Stanley Foundation and is on the executive committee of the Association for Psychological Science.
Barch’s research focuses on understanding normative patterns of functional brain connectivity across development, including the mechanisms that induce behavioral and cognitive challenges in illnesses such as schizophrenia and depression, utilizing behavioral, neuroimaging and computational approaches. Her work is widely funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Affective Disorders, National Science Foundation and the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience. She is a principal investigator of the Lifespan Human Connectome Project and the Adolescent Brain and Cognitive Development (ABCD) study. Barch is also a fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and a member of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
During her presentation, Barch will review what is currently understood about predicting psychosis in children based on previous epidemiological studies. She will also focus on new findings using data from the ABCD Study, which examines the neural, cognitive and behavioral similarities of psychotic-like experiences in childhood. Using data from nearly 4,000 children ages 9 and 10, Barch will demonstrate that problems with memory and thinking, motor skills, symptoms of depression and anxiety, and family history of psychotic disorders are associated with increased psychotic-like experiences in children.
