Dr. George Foussias is a Fellow and Clinician-Scientist in the Schizophrenia Division of the Complex Mental Illness Program. He is completing his research fellowship through CAMH, the Department of Psychiatry, and the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto..
Areas of Research
Dr. Foussias's research focuses on advancing our understanding of the negative symptoms in schizophrenia, with a particular focus on motivational deficits, and their functional consequences. His approaches include longitudinal phenomenology and outcome studies, psychopharmacology treatment trials, neuroimaging, and the development of novel assessment methodologies using virtual reality and motion-tracking technology to tap into real-world performance and functioning. The ultimate goal of this work is to guide the development of more effective treatments for motivational deficits, which stand as an important barrier to functional recovery in schizophrenia.
