COMPUTATIONAL PSYCHIATRY COURSE 2018


10.09.2018 - 14.09.2018


STRUCTURE

The course consists of five parts: 

The first day covers topics in Clinical Psychiatry providing a conceptual basis for the type of questions that Computational Psychiatry will need to address, including an open panel discussions led by scientists with a clinical background in Psychiatry.

The second day explains basic modelling principlesBayesian Inference (Bayesian Models of Perception, Bayesian Hierarchical Learning, Predictive Coding), Machine Learning & the Drift-Diffusion Model

The third day includes models of planning and decision making (MDPs, POMDPs, Reinforcement Learning, Active Inference), Biophysical Models (DCMs) and more advanced model inversion techniques (model selection, model averaging, MCMC, Variational Bayes)

The fourth day features a series of talks by leading scientists on the applications of Computational Psychiatry, including a panel discussion on the future of Computational Psychiatry.

The fifth day includes hands-on practical programming sessions for a subset of the presented models (Bayesian Learning using the Hierarchical Gaussian Filter, Active inference using the Active Inference Toolbox, Model Inversion using the Variational Bayes Toolbox, Reinforcement Learning using the hBayesDM Package)
