This talk focuses on recent attempts to combine brain imaging and genetics in psychiatric research. I will discuss some of my prior work in psychiatric neuroimaging of individuals with schizophrenia, as well as the limitations of this work, and argue that links with psychiatric genomics are of increasing importance for neuroimaging research. Then, I will briefly discuss three ongoing imaging-genomics studies: 1) a transcriptome-wide association study of imaging phenotypes in the UK Biobank; 2) an investigation of copy number variants in the Philadelphia Neurodevelopmental Cohort; 3) an analysis of the correspondence between developmental trajectories derived from imaging and brain gene expression.

This talk is part of the Making connections- brains and other complex systems series.
