This course provides a systematic introduction to Translational Neuromodeling (the development of mathematical models for diagnostics of brain diseases) and their application to concrete clinical questions (Computational Psychiatry/Psychosomatics). It focuses on a generative modeling strategy and discusses (hierarchical) Bayesian models of neuroimaging data and behaviour in detail.
Lectures and Exercises
Lectures take place on Tuesdays 9:15am to 12:00pm in HG F26.3 (ETH main building). Exercises take place on Fridays 2:15pm to 4:00pm in ETZ E6. Lecture slides and exercise sheets will be published here. To download the slides, please use the password distributed during the first lecture.
