Symposium 7 – What do computational models tell us about cognition in depression and psychosis?

This symposium discussed how computational models could be used to explore decision-making and prediction learning in psychiatric disorders. By including computational modelling in our analyses we can identify and quantify key parameters, which are not visible to traditional analyses, and can often be successfully linked to the function of underlying neural systems or to clinically […]

A large body of evidence supports the notion that childhood trauma contributes to the development of mental health problems in later life; but how do these early life events and the biological mechanisms involved actually contribute to the development of psychiatric disorders?
