Red colours show a network of brain areas functionally connected at rest. Blue represents genotypic differences in hippocampal activity.

Helena's research was aimed at characterising the expression of the schizophrenia gene ZNF804A in the human brain and investigating its functional consequences using non-invasive haemodynamic (fMRI) and electrophysiological (MEG) imaging methods. Helena was co-supervised by Professors Paul Harrison and Kia Nobre. Her examiners were Clare Mackay (internal) and Jeremy Hall (Cardiff University).

Helena has already started a postdoctoral position at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience looking at psychiatric diseases in post-mortem human brain tissue.

We wish her all the best for a successful and rewarding career!
