The Computational Psychiatry (CP) is a young discipline, which aims to describe the relationship between the brain’s neurobiology, its environment and mental symptoms in computational terms. In current psychiatric classifi cation systems symptoms entail the diagnosis. However, they provide no mechanistic
explanations for mental symptoms. Accordingly, the concept of CP is driven by the idea of a functional psyche. By formalising mathematically the relationship between symptoms, environments and neurobiology, CP hopes to provide tools to
identify the causes of particular symptoms in individual patients.
During the four days of School, lectures followed by discussion will be held. From psychiatry, computational neuroscience to philosophy, the participants will work on the topic from their own and the speaker's scientific perspective. They will be encouraged to actively participate in the discussion
to exchange opinions and benefit from interdisciplinary ideas.
The lectures are going to be held by Prof. Martin Butz (Computer Science & Psychology, Cognitive Modeling, University of Tübingen), Prof. Dr. Peter Dayan (Max Planck Institute
for Biological Cybernetics, University of Tübingen), Prof. Dr. Caleb Webber(Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford), Junior Prof. Lena Kästner (philosophy of mind and cognitive systems at Saarland
