Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Brain Abnormalities in Schizophrenia

Dr. Mathalon's laboratory studies brain dysfunction in schizophrenia using various brain imaging techniques including EEG, event-related brain potentials, and functional magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Mathalon is particularly interested in whether functional brain abnormalities, as assessed with these methods, can be used as markers in individuals at high risk for schizophrenia to improve our ability to predict who will go on to convert to psychosis.  With improved early detection methods, early interventions can be targeted to those individuals at greatest risk for psychosis.
