The study, entitled “A common brain network links development, aging, and vulnerability to disease” was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal by Dr. Gwenaëlle Douau, a funded researcher from the Medical Research Council at the Oxford University Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB) Centre. This study was the result of an international collaboration between the University of Oxford neuroscience imaging team, neuroscience researchers from the University of Oslo, and research clinicians from the University Hospital Basel, Imperial College London, and the University of Oxford’s Department of Psychiatry.
