Title: Translational Neuromodeling

For many brain diseases, particularly in psychiatry, we lack objective diagnostic tests and cannot predict optimal treatment for individual patients. This presentation outlines a translational neuromodeling framework which aims at establishing “computational assays” for inferring subject-specific mechanisms of brain disease from non-invasive measures of behaviour and neuronal activity. Such assays, derived from a generative modelling approach, may provide a formal basis for differential diagnosis and treatment predictions in individual patients and, eventually, facilitate the construction of pathophysiologically grounded disease classifications. The framework presented emphasises the importance of prospective validation studies in patients and of concrete clinical problems for providing benchmarks for model validation. I will show some early (and mostly very simple) proof of concept studies in patients, and outline the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
