in Biological Psychiatry Course
This course is a joint effort between the Pasteur
Institute Teaching department and the Bio-Psy Laboratory of Excellence
(Labex)* and its partners to promote cutting-edge scientific training
in Biological Psychiatry.Exciting advances in Neurosciences and
Genomics are transforming research in Psychiatry into a highly dynamic
and fast-moving field. The next 10-year period is likely to be “the
decade of psychiatric disorders as research on mental illness is
reaching an inflection point where insights from neuroscience and
genetics will transform our understanding of psychiatric disorders”
(Peter Campbell, Nature Editor).

School on
Computational Social and Behavioral Sciences
The SMART School on Computational Social and
Behavioral Sciences will contribute to bridge the gap between the areas
of social neuroscience, linguistics, psychology and sociology on the
one hand, and mathematics, machine learning, artificial intelligence,
social networks, autonomous agents and social signal processing on the
other hand. This interdisciplinary framework will be efficient only if
regulatory and ethical issues are taken into account at the early steps
of the research.

The Association for the
Improvement of Mental Health Programmes was founded in 2004. Its
objective is to make a contribution to the improvement and promotion of
mental health programmes worldwide. The objective of this courses is to
identify future leaders of psychiatry and facilitate their professional
development. This is being done through (1) the provision of training
in professional skills; (2) the establishment of a worldwide network of
young psychiatrists involving, in particular, those in developing
countries; and (3) support to projects for work that young
psychiatrists undertake together.

Computational Psychiatry Course This 5-day course is designed to provide students with the necessary toolkit to master challenges in computational psychiatry research. We want this course to be practically useful for students (Master, PhD, Postdoc) 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 open source software in application to example data sets. Zürich, Switzerland
