What is Computational Psychiatry?

Computational psychiatry is an interdisciplinary field which seeks to characterize mental disorders in terms of aberrant computations at multiple scales. In recent years the field of human neuroscience, particularly functional neuroimaging, has begun to address the underlying neurobiology of changes in brain function related to psychiatric disease. This effort has produced some exciting early discoveries, but it has also highlighted the need for computational models that can bridge the explanatory gap between pathophysiology and psychopathology. The expertise and quantitative tools required to address this gap exist only across disciplines, combining skills and knowledge from investigators and clinicians that are jointly interested in solving problems of mental health. 

What Is the Aim and Scope of CPC++?

​One of the central concerns in computational neuroscience is to construct theoretical accounts of normal mental function that link characterizations of neurobiology, psychology and aspects of the environment. In Computational Psychiatry, these theories, realized in models at various scales, are used to elucidate dysfunction.


CPC++ started out as a course in 2014 that aimed to equip the next generation of scientists and clinicians who study mental disorder with the tools to understand, to build, to analyse and to critically evaluate computational models of mental function and dysfunction. As the community has grown rapidly over the past decade, CPC++ is now evolved into a hybrid course/conference format where we will showcase new research findings just like any other scientific conferences.

What are the prerequisites for attending CPC++?

- You should have a strong interest in applying computational methods to mental health research and care.
- No prior experience in psychiatry or computational modelling is required.
