We are pleased to host a single day workshop on computational psychiatry,
entitled "Computational approaches to understanding memory, learning,
decision making, and emotion processing".

The brain is an immensely complex system, making it hard to account for the
brain's high-level functions, such as cognitive, emotional, and social
components. The impairments of these circuits often lead to mental illness.
A new approach, dubbed as computational psychiatry, combines experiments
with computational modelling to provide the means to prevent psychiatric
disorders. This workshop discusses recent advances in applying
neuroeconomics, computational neuroscience, artificial intelligence to the
study decision making, learning and memory. A deeper insight into these
functions is expected to permit development of model-based diagnosis of
mental disorders.
