Medical Psychology

Description

The research line Medical Psychology focuses on using modern psychological approaches to optimize medical outcomes and quality of life.

The three research lines cooperate naturally. Applied Social and Forensic Psychiatry applies neurobiological (biomarker and genetic) approaches in collaboration with our laboratory of Neurobiology of Mood & Psychotic Disorders. Mood (and its medical perspectives) is also often a study focus area in the Medical Psychology research line.
