Computational Psychiatry Course 2016

This 5-day course is designed to provide students with the necessary toolkit to master challenges in computational psychiatry research.

We want this course to be practically useful for students (Master, PhD, Postdoc) who would like to apply modeling techniques to study learning, decision-making or brain physiology in patients with psychiatric disorders. The course will teach not only the theory of computational modeling, but also demonstrate open source software in application to example data sets.
