NARSAD presents 2007 prizes for outstanding achievement in neuroscience and psychiatric research
Date:10/16/2007

ded a substantial body of evidence on the abnormalities of brain structure in people with schizophrenia and on the mechanism of antipsychotic treatments. She led the Edinburgh High Risk Study, which followed teenagers from families with a history of schizophrenia for a 10-year period. She has also led large controlled treatment trials of depressed and anxious patients which, in addition to demonstrating treatment effects, have clarified the nature of these disorders.

According to William E. Bunney, Jr., M.D., chair of NARSADs Leiber Prize Selection Committee: "Eve Johnstone has made outstanding contributions to the understanding of schizophrenia through decades of research using advanced brain imaging methods to elucidate the structural and functional changes associated with this disorder. She initiated the most replicated finding in the literature on psychosis -- enlargement of the lateral ventricles in the brain. "

  • Falcone Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Mood Disorders Research: Helen S. Mayberg, M.D., is professor of psychiatry and neurology at Emory University School of Medicine. Her functional neuroimaging studies over the past 20 years have systematically examined neural mechanisms implicated in the onset of depression, as well as in the response of patients to various antidepressant treatments including medications, cognitive behavioral therapy and placebo. Dr. Mayberg was instrumental in developing deep brain stimulation, a new intervention being tested for treatment-resistant patients.

    About her work, Robert M. Post, M.D., chair of NARSADs Falcone Prize Selection Committee, wrote: "Dr. Helen Mayberg made seminal contributions to understanding the pathophysiology and prediction of pharmacological treatment response in unipolar and bipolar affective disorders using brain imaging with PET. She then utilized this information to find a key area of the anterior cingulate cortex that she hypothesized would re
