Mini-Symposium - Computational Psychiatry: Multiscale Models of Mental Illness
Location: Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.
Sponsor(s): National Institute of Mental Health
On November 12, 2017, NIMH hosted a mini-symposium to introduce new and burgeoning field of computational psychiatry. Computational psychiatry applies cutting-edge quantitative methods and theoretical models to investigate neural or cognitive phenomena relevant to psychiatric diseases. Presentations covered practical examples of theory- and data-driven computational models of cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia, emotion regulation, anxiety, and drug addiction.
