Biological Psychiatry – Neuroimaging Biomarkers of Psychological Trauma

We are happy to announce that the artwork of our IRTG2150 students was featured in recent issue of Biological Psychiatry.

This cover was jointly designed by Laura Bell (Ph.D. candidate at RWTH Aachen University) and Cedric Huchuan Xia (M.D.-Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania). The Journal extends its sincere thanks to both for creating this art for the cover.

On the cover, a distressed young girl, clinging tightly to her stuffed animal, curls up at a lonely corner. Juxtaposed on the walls are the monster-shaped shadow, representing the girl’s psychological trauma, and frames of brightly colored brain art, representing neuroimaging.
