Mental Health through the lens of machine learning applied to neuroimaging (13/9/17)

Considering that current psychiatric categories fail to align with findings from clinical neuroscience and genetics and have not been predictive of treatment response, there is clearly a need for developing new ways of classifying mental health disorders combining clinical assessments with neurobiological measures.
