The use of mathematical and computer-assisted modeling of brain mechanisms involved in men- tal disorders can be called " Computational Neu- ropsychiatry " . It was already demonstrated by several initiatives that computational modeling is an important contribution to understand neu- ronal circuits that could generate mental func- tions and dysfunctions. However, this attempt needs close collaboration between experimental neurobiologists, clinical psychiatry and systems science. In order to do… Expand
Systems Biopsychiatry: The Cognitive Neurodynamics of Schizophrenia in an Integrated Systemic View
The atomistic research program in biological psychiatry has to admit increasingly that only a systemic re-construction of the brain might help to understand mental functions and dysfunctionsExpand
From mind to molecules and back to mind-Metatheoretical limits and options for systems neuropsychiatry.
TLDR
The conceptual background of nonlinear science is essential to bridge gaps between neurobiology and psychiatry, defining a real "theoretical" field of neuropsychiatry. Expand
A heuristic model for working memory deficit in schizophrenia.
TLDR
A heuristic computational model that accounts for interactions among neurotransmitters across various brain regions and permits a variety of assessments of genetic, biochemical, and pharmacological perturbations serves as an intuitive tool for explaining clinical and biological observations. Expand
Systems biology and psychiatry - modeling molecular and cellular networks of mental disorders.
TLDR
Developing "systems biology of the neuron" could become a pivotal achievement for a better understanding of mental illness on the molecular level and a brief outline of imminent tasks and links between systems biology and biological psychiatry is presented. Expand
Comprehensive review: Computational modelling of schizophrenia
TLDR
A review that first synthesizes the literature of computational modelling for schizophrenia and psychotic symptoms into categories supporting the dopamine, glutamate, GABA, dysconnection and Bayesian inference hypotheses respectively, and identifies specific hypotheses that have been left relatively under-investigated.

Brain oscillations forever--neurophysiology in future research of child psychiatric problems.

TLDR
A systematic neurodynamic look at transitional processes from rest to stimulus-triggered goal-directed performance will aid behavioural understanding and guidance of children, and preliminary data suggest two separate oscillatory mechanisms in this respect. Expand
Systems biology in psychiatric research: from complex data sets over wiring diagrams to computer simulations.
TLDR
Only interdisciplinary work among mathematicians, physicists, biologists, and clinicians can further improve the understanding of complex diseases of the brain. Expand
The molecular and cellular neurobiology of nicotine abuse in schizophrenia.
TLDR
A better understanding of the molecular and cellular effects of nicotine and how they are related to the pathophysiology and symptomatology of schizophrenia may help to identify new targets for the pharmacotherapy of schizophrenia and of nicotine addiction in schizophrenia. Expand
Systems biology and addiction.
TLDR
Building up "computational molecular systems biology of the (addicted) neuron" could provide a better molecular biological understanding of addiction on the cellular and network level. Expand
Multi-level Models
TLDR
The brain is a prototype of a hierarchical system that can be identified with chemical kinetics, at the channel level with biophysically detailed equations for the membrane potential, and at the synaptic and network levels with learning rules to describe the dynamics of synaptic modifiability.

D1 receptors in prefrontal cells and circuits
TLDR
These studies are based on the hypothesis that many features of schizophrenia represent a failure in the neural mechanisms by which prefrontal cortex stores and prowles information in working memory. Expand

  • 2006
TLDR
An integrate-and-fire network is used to model fMRI data on short term memory in order to understand data obtained in topologically different parts of the prefrontal cortex during working memory tasks and it is shown that the effects of neuromodulation by dopamine of the synaptic processes utilized in the neurons in the model leads to experimental predictions of the results of manipulations of dopamine on working memory.

The neurochemical circuitry of schizophrenia.
TLDR
The paper shows that thinking in loops might be an efficient strategy for obtaining a functional understanding of the neuronal circuitry involved in the complex symptomatology of schizophrenia. Expand

TLDR
Theoretical neuropsychiatry should use the tools of theoretical sciences like cybernetics, informatics, computational neuroscience or systems science to understand brain functions and the disorders and actions of psychiatric drugs better. Expand
The physiological approach: functional architecture of working memory and disordered cognition in schizophrenia
TLDR
The method of single-cell recording in awake behaving monkeys as they perform behavioral tasks is perhaps the most powerful approach to understanding the neural basis of behavior and fundamental issues about normal brain function and dementia are examined. Expand
The principal features and mechanisms of dopamine modulation in the prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Certain principles of DA mechanisms are identified by drawing on published, as well as unpublished data from PFC and other CNS sites to shed light on aspects of DA neuromodulation and address some of the existing controversies. Expand
Altered effective connectivity during working memory performance in schizophrenia: a study with fMRI and structural equation modeling
TLDR
The study demonstrated the feasibility of structural equation modeling for the investigation of group and treatment-related differences in effective connectivity and provides a promising approach to further disentangle the relationship between altered functional capacity and associated fMRI signal changes.

Cortical inhibitory neurons and schizophrenia
TLDR
Convergent findings indicate that a deficiency in signalling through the TrkB neurotrophin receptor leads to reduced GABA synthesis in the parvalbumin-containing subpopulation of inhibitory GABA neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of individuals with schizophrenia. Expand

Genes, dopamine and cortical signal-to-noise ratio in schizophrenia
TLDR
In schizophrenia, an abnormal cortical dopamine D1/D2 activation ratio - in concert with, and in part related to, altered GABA and glutamate transmission - appears to interfere crucially with this process. Expand
