Computational Psychiatry Course aims to bring together experts in
neuroscience, psychiatry, decision sciences and computational modelling
to define problems in psychiatric disorder in quantitative terms, and to
train the next generation of scientists and clinicians that wish to
apply computational models to modern diagnosis and treatment strategies.
Understanding mental function as computation will provide a deeper, more quantitative insight into the mechanistic underpinnings of healthy and diseased cognition. Modern computational psychiatry draws on many areas across the clinical and basic sciences and represents a truly multi-disciplinary approach to mental dysfunction.
By end of this course, you will hopefully be able to:
- Use model-based approaches at multiple levels of analysis (behavioural, neurophysiological etc).
- Understand the most recent applications of computational modelling to various psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, affective and personality disorders, addiction, ageing, etc.
- You should have a strong interest in applying computational methods to psychiatric research.
- No prior experience in psychiatry or computational modelling is required.
