The ultimate goal of my research is to identify bio-behavioral markers--scans and tests--that will make the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders starting in childhood better--more specific, targeted, accurate, and earlier.
This same approach has revolutionized the war on childhood cancer.
Together, we can make a powerful difference!
In particular, we have ongoing projects involving (a) bipolar disorder, ADHD, and anxiety, (b) teen suicide and self-cutting (non-suicidal self-injury), and (c) autism spectrum disorders.

Daniel Dickstein MD leads Bradley Hospital's Pedi-MIND research program, which uses brain imaging techniques, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), behavioral measures, and genetic analyses to identify biological and behavioral markers (scans and tests) of psychiatric illness, including bipolar disorder, in children and adolescents. Such markers could help physicians make more accurate diagnoses and improve treatment.
