Career Summary

Biography

Associate Professor Carmel Loughland is a member of the Priority Centre for Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health, and a academic within the Faculty of Medicine and Population Health, University of Newcastle. A/Professor Loughland is also a senior psychologist with several years practical experience as a registered psychologist (Registration No. PS0001366383) and is authorised to supervise intern and registered psychologists, and is also a registered Justice of the Peace (Registration No.129021). A/Professor Loughland obtained her Ph.D from the University of Sydney in 2002. Her research focuses on visuo-cognition deficits, particularly face processing disturbances, in people with schizophrenia and other clinical disorders (i.e., affective disorder, borderline personality disorder, psychopathy). In 2002, she established an eye tracking laboratory purpose built for visual scanpath research at the McAuley Centre, Mater Hospital, Newcastle and has been successful in securing a number of research grants as chief investigator to pursue her projects (totalling $188,720). These included the prestigious US NARSAD Young Investigator Award, Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) Early Career Researcher Award, HMRI Project Grants as well as a NISAD Project Grant and three University of Newcastle Faculty of Health Equipment Grants.

This research has resulted in a number of high quality publications. A/Professor Loughland has been invited to present her research findings at national and international scientific meetings, including keynote speaker and symposium chair invitations, and has been invited to present at several community mental health forums. She has held key roles in the organisation of national conferences. In 1997,A/Professor Loughland established the Schizophrenia Research Institute’s Register (SRR) and is a founding member of the Hunter Medical Research Institute’s Volunteer Research Register (HMRI-VRR) established in 2003. These two resources engage the community in medical research by allowing volunteers to participate in research projects in their local area. Medical researchers are able to access these resources to recruit participants for their projects. To date, these two resources have supported over 400 research projects, and in the process reduced research costs and inform the public about medical research outcomes. Following on the success of the Register, A/Professor Loughland and collaborators obtained funding (The Percy Baxter Charitable Foundation; Australian Rotary Health Research Fund Research Grant) to establish the Hunter DNA Bank for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorder in 2003. More recently, A/Professor Loughland and collaborators established the Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank (ASRB), which provides a national facility for genetic research into schizophrenia. NHMRC Enabling Grant (ID386500 - $1.75 M) and Pratt Foundation ($1.5M) funding was successfully obtained to establish the ASRB, which expands, enriches and links existing SRI programs of infrastructure to provide a national not-for-profit resource to support a wide spectrum of Australian and international schizophrenia research projects.

A/Professor Loughland currently manages the ASRB and is responsible for overseeing recruitment, clinical assessment, neuropsychological measurement, MRI/DTI brain scanning and blood sample collection in people with schizophrenia and healthy controls. This unique resource has drawn significant national and international scientific attention and not only makes a valuable contribution to Australian medical research, but to the broader community through the provision of educational information. A/Professor Loughland has appeared on several national television programs to discuss her research including ‘Sunrise’, ‘Foxtel News’ and current affairs programs such as ‘Today Extra’, and been interviewed several times on national and local radio.

Research Expertise
A/Prof. Loughland is an established researcher with a strong track record in investigating visuo-cognitive deficits in schizophrenia, particularly face emotion processing deficits, and developing remediation programs to reduce the impact of deficits on people's interpersonal and social functioning. A/Prof. Loughland has extended this research to examine how women with mental health disorders process infant face emotion to investigate issues around parenting and child mental health and wellbeing. In addition to this research, A/Prof. Loughland has been involved in the development and management of a number of biobank facilities including the Australian Schizophrenia Research Biobank (ASRB) which holds clinical neuropsychological, fMRI/DTI and genetic data collected from volunteers with schizophrenia and matched controls. This facility has supported over 80 schizophrenia related projects and helps raise awareness about the disorder within the community through research participation and information dissemination. More recently, A/Prof. Loughland and collaborators have developed a communication skills training package called ComPsych to provide core communication skills training to mental health professional for use in psychiatric care. Research is currently being undertaken to evaluate the utility and validity of the ComPsych program in clinical settings with the aim of improving practitioner-patient outcomes for people with a mental illness.

Teaching Expertise
A/Prof. Loughland supervisors students in medicine and psychology, and has provided courses in personality and individual diffierences, clinical assessment and data management, and abnormal psychology. A/Prof. Loughland RHD students are currently undertaking research in face processing in people with schizophrenia, psychopathy, post-natal depression,and borderline personality disorder. Students are also working in studies investigating parenting and infant face perception, the perception and experiences of medical research volunteers, and the evaluation of communication skills training programs in psychiatry.

Administrative Expertise
A/Prof Loughland is a senior academic with several years experience managing people.

Collaborations
Dr Loughland is a member of several research teams. These include the following: Local Research Collaboration: Priority Centre for Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health Centre for Rural and Remote Research National Research Collaboration: Schizophrenia Research Insititute (SRI) Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank (ASRB) International Research Collaboration: Schizophrenia Psychiatric Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) Consortium

Objective: This study investigated the ability of the Audio Recorded Cognitive Screen (ARCS) to detect cognitive deficit in individuals with schizophrenia, relative to the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS), and explored the associations between the ARCS and functional outcomes. We hypothesised that the ARCS would be able to better discriminate between individuals with schizophrenia and healthy controls than the MMSE, and that ARCS performance would be correlated with measures of social and vocational functioning. Methods: The participants were 19 community-dwelling individuals with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder and 19 healthy controls recruited from the Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank (ASRB). Participants completed the ARCS, MMSE, and self-report measures of social and vocational functioning. Clinical and diagnostic data stored by the ASRB were also utilised. Results: The schizophrenia group performed worse than the control group on the ARCS, with memory, t(36)=2.49, p=0.02, 95% CI [-1.84, -18.79] and fluency, t(36)=2.40, p=0.02, 95% CI [-1.87, -22.24] domains being the main discriminating measures. The RBANS also discriminated between the two groups, and ARCS and RBANS total scores were moderately to strongly correlated. There was no difference between the two groups on the MMSE after controlling for demographic variables. ARCS performance was associated with employment status [¿2(1)=7.16, p=0.007]. Conclusion: The ARCS may be sensitive to the cognitive deficits in outpatients with schizophrenia and an indicator of functional outcomes in this population.

Schizophrenia is a highly heritable disorder. Genetic risk is conferred by a large number of alleles, including common alleles of small effect that might be detected by genome-wide association studies. Here we report a multi-stage schizophrenia genome-wide association study of up to 36,989 cases and 113,075 controls. We identify 128 independent associations spanning 108 conservatively defined loci that meet genome-wide significance, 83 of which have not been previously reported. Associations were enriched among genes expressed in brain, providing biological plausibility for the findings. Many findings have the potential to provide entirely new insights into aetiology, but associations at DRD2 and several genes involved in glutamatergic neurotransmission highlight molecules of known and potential therapeutic relevance to schizophrenia, and are consistent with leading pathophysiological hypotheses. Independent of genes expressed in brain, associations were enriched among genes expressed in tissues that have important roles in immunity, providing support for the speculated link between the immune system and schizophrenia. © 2014 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Background: 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is associated with a number of physical anomalies and neuropsychological deficits including impairments in executive and sensorimotor function. It is estimated that 25% of children with 22q11DS will develop schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders later in life. Evidence of genetic transmission of information processing deficits in schizophrenia suggests performance in 22q11DS individuals will enhance understanding of the neurobiological and genetic substrates associated with information processing. In this report, we examine information processing in 22q11DS using measures of startle eyeblink modification and antisaccade inhibition to explore similarities with schizophrenia and associations with neurocognitive performance. Methods: Startle modification (passive and active tasks; 120- and 480-ms pre-pulse intervals) and antisaccade inhibition were measured in 25 individuals with genetically confirmed 22q11DS and 30 healthy control subjects. Results: Individuals with 22q1 1DS exhibited increased antisaccade error as well as some evidence (trend-level effect) of impaired sensorimotor gating during the active condition, suggesting a dysfunction in controlled attentional processing, rather than a pre-attentive dysfunction using this paradigm. Conclusions: The findings from the present study show similarities with previous studies in clinical populations associated with 22q11DS such as schizophrenia that may indicate shared dysfunction of inhibition pathways in these groups.

Background Schizophrenia is associated with lower pre-morbid intelligence (IQ) in addition to (pre-morbid) cognitive decline. Both schizophrenia and IQ are highly heritable traits. Therefore, we hypothesized that genetic variants associated with schizophrenia, including copy number variants (CNVs) and a polygenic schizophrenia (risk) score (PSS), may influence intelligence. Method IQ was estimated with the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS). CNVs were determined from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data using the QuantiSNP and PennCNV algorithms. For the PSS, odds ratios for genome-wide SNP data were calculated in a sample collected by the Psychiatric Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) Consortium (8690 schizophrenia patients and 11 831 controls). These were used to calculate individual PSSs in our independent sample of 350 schizophrenia patients and 322 healthy controls. Results Although significantly more genes were disrupted by deletions in schizophrenia patients compared to controls (p = 0.009), there was no effect of CNV measures on IQ. The PSS was associated with disease status (R 2 = 0.055, p = 2.1 × 10 -7) and with IQ in the entire sample (R 2 = 0.018, p = 0.0008) but the effect on IQ disappeared after correction for disease status. Conclusions Our data suggest that rare and common schizophrenia-associated variants do not explain the variation in IQ in healthy subjects or in schizophrenia patients. Thus, reductions in IQ in schizophrenia patients may be secondary to other processes related to schizophrenia risk. © Cambridge University Press 2013.
