Zurich meets London

Experts from the University College London and the ZNZ will present and discuss their pioneering work at the event entitled “Neuroscience – Novel Approaches to Understanding the Mechanisms of Mental Health and Illness” in London, 18 May 2016. UCL Neuroscience and ZNZ have maintained a research partnership since 2013.

One third of the population suffers from some form of mental disorder once in their lifetime. In a highly innovative approach, computational psychiatry brings together researchers from such diverse fields as psychiatry, cognitive neuroscience, behavioral economics, and mathematics with the aim of modeling neural and cognitive phenomena in order to better understand psychiatric disorders.
