This course is organized by the Translational Neuromodeling Unit (TNU) , University of Zurich & ETH Zurich and is designed to provide students across fields (neuroscience, psychiatry, physics, biology, psychology....) with the necessary toolkit to master challenges in computational psychiatry research.
The CPC Zurich is meant to be practically useful for students at all levels (MDs, Master, PhD, Postdoc, PI) coming from diverse backgrounds (neuroscience, psychology, medicine, engineering, physics, etc.), who would like to apply modeling techniques to study learning, decision-making or brain physiology in patients with psychiatric disorders. The course will teach not only the theory of computational modeling, but also demonstrate software in application to example data sets.
We strongly believe in open source and open science, therefore, the content of the course will be made freely accessible on the web.
The Translational Neuromodeling Unit (TNU) has been organizing the Computational Psychiatry Course in Zurich since 2015. All materials from previous courses can be found here.
