Abstract

Psychiatric disorders are typically diagnosed and evaluated using subjective psychological exams that assess symptoms, thoughts, feelings and behavioral patterns. Ongoing and recent advances in measurements provide EEG, functional MRI, optogenetic, genomic, and metabolic data. Along with mathematical methods developed to analyze these data, a more physiological and quantitative approach for diagnosis and treatment can be envisioned. This workshop will explore how modern computational tools and mathematical modeling can be integrated with measurements to improve psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.
