Computational neuroscience applications in Psychiatry

Neurocomputation models have been used to explore the parallel distributed nature of information handling in the brain. The effects of pertubation of such system provide insights to pathogenetic pathways of how biological brain system dysfunctions might link to cognitive and experiential psychopathologies. Models of psychosis and symptom formation have been proposed.

Current/Developing projects:
  • Attractor neural network model for brain and dopamine dysfunction psychosis
  • Neurocomputational models of psychotic symptom formation
  • Neurocomputational model of early psychosis
