This PhD project is accomplished as a part of The Danish High Risk and Resilience Study - VIA, which is a longitudinal nationwide familial high-risk study carried out in collaboration between Mental Health Centre Copenhagen and Aarhus University Hospital Risskov. The overall purpose of the VIA-study is to identify early risk and resilience factors of schizophrenia (SZ) and bipolar disorder (BD) as well as to examine developmental trajectories in order to be able to develop future preventaative and protective interventions.
The main aim of this PhD study is to examine theory of mind (ToM) and social behavior in children at familial high-risk of developing SZ or BD compared to a group of population-based controls. This will be done with data from MRI and fMRI scans as well as behavioral data.
