Areas of Research
Dr. Ameis’s work focuses on using advanced neuroimaging techniques to study how variation in the structure and function of brain circuits increases susceptibility for neuropsychiatric disorders that affect children and adolescents, with a focus on autism spectrum disorders (ASD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and disruptive behavior disorders. Dr. Ameis’ research work also uses longitudinal brain imaging to track the effects of novel and existing treatments on brain structure and function over time. The main goals of Dr. Ameis’ research are to: (i) identify brain-based biomarkers of childhood mental illness, (ii) understand how existing and novel (i.e., medications, behavioural therapies, brain stimulation) interventions/treatments work using advanced brain imaging approaches, and (iii) identify biomarkers of treatment response using longitudinal brain imaging to personalize treatments for children and adolescents with mental illness.
