Show Summary Details


Psychiatry is at a crossroads. Faced with challenges of diagnosis and treatment, it must balance analyses at both neurological and psychological levels. Issues of comorbidity, treatment stability, and questions of categorization vs. dimensionality all weigh heavily in current discussions, yet progress has been limited, at best. Computational neuroscience offers a new lens through which to view these issues. This volume presents the results of a unique collaboration between psychiatrists, computational and theoretical neuroscientists, and reveals the synergistic ideas, surprising results, and novel open questions that emerged. It outlines potential approaches to be taken and discusses the implications that these new ideas bring to bear on the challenges faced by neuroscience and psychiatry.
