Enhancing Neuroimaging Genetics Through Meta-Analysis (ENIGMA)

The ENIGMA Network brings together researchers in imaging genomics to understand brain structure, function, and disease, based on brain imaging and genetic data. There are 50 active ENIGMA working groups including schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) working groups.

The ENIGMA schizophrenia Working Group is an international collaboration project to develop research studies and therapy of mental illness for patients and therapists, working with schizophrenia experts from approximately 120 institutions and universities around the world, including Seoul National University in Korea, to provide better treatment.

The ENIGMA-OCD Working Group aims at bringing OCD research groups together to share neuroimaging and  genetic databases, and initially started in 2010 as the OCD Brain Imaging Consortium (OBIC). Currently the ENIGMA-OCD working group is an international collaboration including 32 research groups from 16 different countries worldwide, including Seoul National University in Korea.

 

 Structural Covariance in OCD Brains: Discussing ENIGMAtters with Dr. Je-Yeon Yun

Dr. Je-Yeon Yun from the Seoul National University College of Medicine in South Korea described her novel method of analyzing structural covariance in OCD patients. In this analysis, the covariance will assess the degree to which subcortical and cortical volumes fluctuate in tandem.
