Ed Bullmore is Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge. His research career has been focused primarily on the development of new mathematical and statistical techniques for analysis of neurophysiological data and the application of these techniques both to characterise brain abnormalities in patients with psychiatric disorders, and as pharmacodynamic measures in the evaluation of psychoactive drugs.Two consistent general hypotheses underlying this work have been that neurophysiological processes will often have fractal or scaling properties and that understanding brain organisation at the level of large-scale neurocognitive systems is critical for biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology. Professor Bullmore’s scientific leadership has led to significant advances in understanding changes in functional anatomy that underpin a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, particularly schizophrenia. Not only has he discovered how to analyse neural connectivity within imaging data, but also the implications of distributed activity in structural, functional, genetic and psychopharmacological contexts.
