Assigning the right credit to the wrong action: compulsivity in the general population is associated with augmented outcome-irrelevant value-based learning.

Nitzan Shahar, Tobias U Hauser, Rani Moran, Michael Moutoussis, , Edward T Bullmore, Raymond J Dolan,

Compulsive behavior is enacted under a belief that a specific act controls the likelihood of an undesired future event. Compulsive behaviors are widespread in the general population despite having no causal relationship with events they aspire to influence. In the current study, we tested whether there is an increased tendency ... Read more >>

Decision-making ability, psychopathology, and brain connectivity.

Michael Moutoussis, Benjamín Garzón, Sharon Neufeld, Dominik R Bach, Francesco Rigoli, Ian Goodyer, Edward Bullmore, , Marc Guitart-Masip, Raymond J Dolan,

Decision-making is a cognitive process of central importance for the quality of our lives. Here, we ask whether a common factor underpins our diverse decision-making abilities. We obtained 32 decision-making measures from 830 young people and identified a common factor that we call "decision acuity," which was distinct from IQ ... Read more >>

Preference uncertainty accounts for developmental effects on susceptibility to peer influence in adolescence.

Andrea M F Reiter, Michael Moutoussis, Lucy Vanes, Rogier Kievit, Edward T Bullmore, Ian M Goodyer, Peter Fonagy, Peter B Jones, , Raymond J Dolan,

Adolescents are prone to social influence from peers, with implications for development, both adaptive and maladaptive. Here, using a computer-based paradigm, we replicate a cross-sectional effect of more susceptibility to peer influence in a large dataset of adolescents 14 to 24 years old. Crucially, we extend this finding by adopting ... Read more >>

An expanding manifold in transmodal regions characterizes adolescent reconfiguration of structural connectome organization.

Bo-Yong Park, Richard Ai Bethlehem, Casey Paquola, Sara Larivière, Raul Rodríguez-Cruces, Reinder Vos de Wael, , Edward T Bullmore, Boris C Bernhardt,

Adolescence is a critical time for the continued maturation of brain networks. Here, we assessed structural connectome development in a large longitudinal sample ranging from childhood to young adulthood. By projecting high-dimensional connectomes into compact manifold spaces, we identified a marked expansion of structural connectomes, with strongest effects in transmodal ... Read more >>

Opportunities and Challenges for Digital Social Prescribing in Mental Health: Questionnaire Study.

Shivani Patel, Gerry Craigen, Mariana Pinto da Costa, Becky Inkster,

<h4>Background</h4>The concept of digital social prescription usually refers to social prescriptions that are facilitated by using technology. Tools that enable such digital social prescriptions may be beneficial in recommending nonmedical activities to people with mental illness. As these tools are still somewhat novel and emerging, little is known about their ... Read more >>

Compulsivity is linked to reduced adolescent development of goal-directed control and frontostriatal functional connectivity.

Matilde M Vaghi, Michael Moutoussis, František Váša, Rogier A Kievit, Tobias U Hauser, Petra E Vértes, Nitzan Shahar, Rafael Romero-Garcia, Manfred G Kitzbichler, Edward T Bullmore, , Raymond J Dolan,

A characteristic of adaptive behavior is its goal-directed nature. An ability to act in a goal-directed manner is progressively refined during development, but this refinement can be impacted by the emergence of psychiatric disorders. Disorders of compulsivity have been framed computationally as a deficit in model-based control, and have been ... Read more >>

Building the future of financial healthcare technology practices

Becky Inkster, Andrea Stevenson, Bilal Mateen, Peggy Loo,

<p>Given the demands for services that intersect financial health and well-being, and that people are increasingly operationalizing their digital footprints, we argue for the co-evolution of healthcare practices and financial technology. Innovation bridged across finance, health and technology could inform new practice/operating models, whilst fostering environments that value and prioritize ... Read more >>

Conservative and disruptive modes of adolescent change in human brain functional connectivity.

František Váša, Rafael Romero-Garcia, Manfred G Kitzbichler, Jakob Seidlitz, Kirstie J Whitaker, Matilde M Vaghi, Prantik Kundu, Ameera X Patel, Peter Fonagy, Raymond J Dolan, Peter B Jones, Ian M Goodyer, , Petra E Vértes, Edward T Bullmore,

Adolescent changes in human brain function are not entirely understood. Here, we used multiecho functional MRI (fMRI) to measure developmental change in functional connectivity (FC) of resting-state oscillations between pairs of 330 cortical regions and 16 subcortical regions in 298 healthy adolescents scanned 520 times. Participants were aged 14 to ... Read more >>

<h4>Background</h4>In 2009, the National Institute of Mental Health launched the Research Domain Criteria, an attempt to move beyond diagnostic categories and ground psychiatry within neurobiological constructs that combine different levels of measures (e.g., brain imaging and behavior). Statistical methods that can integrate such multimodal data, however, are often vulnerable to ... Read more >>

Schizotypy-Related Magnetization of Cortex in Healthy Adolescence Is Colocated With Expression of Schizophrenia-Related Genes.

Rafael Romero-Garcia, Jakob Seidlitz, Kirstie J Whitaker, Sarah E Morgan, Peter Fonagy, Raymond J Dolan, Peter B Jones, Ian M Goodyer, John Suckling, , Petra E Vértes, Edward T Bullmore,

<h4>Background</h4>Genetic risk is thought to drive clinical variation on a spectrum of schizophrenia-like traits, but the underlying changes in brain structure that mechanistically link genomic variation to schizotypal experience and behavior are unclear.<h4>Methods</h4>We assessed schizotypy using a self-reported questionnaire and measured magnetization transfer as a putative microstructural magnetic resonance imaging ...

Credit assignment to state-independent task representations and its relationship with model-based decision making.

Nitzan Shahar, Rani Moran, Tobias U Hauser, Rogier A Kievit, Daniel McNamee, Michael Moutoussis, , Raymond J Dolan,

Model-free learning enables an agent to make better decisions based on prior experience while representing only minimal knowledge about an environment's structure. It is generally assumed that model-free state representations are based on outcome-relevant features of the environment. Here, we challenge this assumption by providing evidence that a putative model-free ... Read more >>

GSK3β: a plausible mechanism of cognitive and hippocampal changes induced by erythropoietin treatment in mood disorders?

Becky Inkster, Gwyneth Zai, Gemma Lewis, Kamilla W Miskowiak,

Mood disorders are associated with significant psychosocial and occupational disability. It is estimated that major depressive disorder (MDD) will become the second leading cause of disability worldwide by 2020. Existing pharmacological and psychological treatments are limited for targeting cognitive dysfunctions in mood disorders. However, growing evidence from human and animal ... Read more >>

<h4>Objective</h4>Glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) has been implicated in mood disorders. We previously reported associations between a GSK3β polymorphism and hippocampal volume in major depressive disorder (MDD). We then reported similar associations for a subset of GSK3β-regulated genes. We now investigate an algorithm-derived comprehensive list of genes encoding proteins that ... Read more >>
