Actionable Neuroimaging in Psychiatry
I received training in psychology (BA) and medicine (MBBS) in India and in psychiatry (residency) and neuroimaging (PhD) in the UK. My interest in psychiatry emerged from a brief but intense experience of restlessness (akathisia) and loss of pleasure (anhedonia) after taking haloperidol as a medical student. I continue to be restless in the quest for better treatments in psychiatric care, but have no anhedonia in doing so. In fact, I derive immense pleasure from the small amount of clinical work that I am able to do with people who learnt about psychosis and depression from their experience. I welcome residents who want to balance clinical care and research pursuits and trainees who want their research pursuits to benefit clinical care. I will be more than happy to share the interesting bits of a clinical academic career that people never put in their CVs. PS: Palaniyappan is pronounced as PALA – NEE – APEN [Tamil].
