Dr. Raymond Chan has a long standing interest in schizophrenia and related disorders, and mentally at-risk individuals. This is reflected in a substantial contribution to neuropsychological studies, neuroimaging and behavioural genetics research in this field. His research also focuses on the neuropsychological and neurobiological markers for schizophrenia and at-risk group, seeking to understand what parts of the brain is targeted in these conditions and potential causal mechanisms. The work on neurological soft signs in schizophrenia spectrum disorders documents new evidence for the “hard” science of neurological soft signs in schizophrenia and challenges the traditional definitions of these signs and pave ways for more sophisticated study of neurological soft signs in schizophrenia spectrum disorders. The work on anhedonia has contributed to the understanding of psychopathology in clinical and subclinical samples and facilitates future cross-cultural studies. His recent work also looks into the distinct and shared psychopathologies across clinical groups and their subclinical sample using a wide range of neuroscientific methods including structural and functional (resting-state and task-based) MRI and MRS as well as behavioural genetics.
