Brain basis of population mental health in the UK Biobank

Abstract: The UK Biobank is a longitudinal population neuroimaging dataset with extensive neuroimaging, genomic, and phenotypic measures for up to N=100,000 older-age participants. The lack of exclusion criteria, statistical power, and deep phenotyping in this cohort provide an important opportunity to investigate ‘real-world’ mental health. I will present several studies performed in our lab over the past three years to validate UK Biobank mental health measures, identify reproducible multivariate neural correlates of mental health, parse clinical and biological heterogeneity in mental health, and identify lifestyle factors that promote resilience to mental health.
