University Hospital of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy
Research at the University Hospital of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy addresses the antecedences and consequences of psychiatric disorders with an onset during childhood and adolescence up to emerging adulthood. The main focus of our research is on clinical outcomes and neurobiological mechanisms associated with risk-taking and self-injurious behavior in adolescents as well as the development of personality disorders. Other projects address the topics: early psychosis, sleep and psychiatric disorders, and Internet-related disorders. We apply research methods across the spectrum of behavioral paradigms, neuroimaging, ecological momentary assessment, psychophysiology and neuroendocrinology in clinical as well as experimental studies.
