Centre for Healthy BrainAgeing

Adith Mohan is a consultant neuropsychiatrist at the Neuropsychiatric Institute (NPI), Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney, Australia. He is also a Research Fellow with the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA), and a Senior Lecturer with the School of Psychiatry, UNSW. His research interests include novel pharmacological interventions in neuropsychiatry, the study of human brain transcriptome changes related to ageing, as well as therapeutic neuromodulation in neuropsychiatric disorders. He currently leads a clinical trial investigating the use of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in mild cognitive impairment and is involved in studies of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Tourette syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

He is actively involved in the Section of Neuropsychiatry (SoN) of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, is the jurisdictional representative for the state of New South Wales on the SoN, and is currently involved in the development of a competency based training curriculum for Neuropsychiatry.
