The Brain Conferences: New Insights into Psychiatric Disorders through Computational, Biological and Developmental Approaches

Psychiatric disorders are a major health challenge in today’s world. This meeting will focus on how computational, neurobiological and developmental perspectives can inform current and future approaches to psychiatric diseases. The broader goal is to ask how contributions from these fields may assist in providing a better characterisation of these conditions, potentially also identifying novel phenotypes.
