Computational Modelling of the Neural Systems Involved in Schizophrenia

  title={Computational Modelling of the Neural Systems Involved in Schizophrenia},
  author={Angela J. Thurnham},
The aim of this thesis is to improve our understanding of the neural systems involved in schizophrenia by suggesting possible avenues for future computational modelling in an attempt to make sense of the vast number of studies relating to the symptoms and cognitive deficits relating to the disorder. This multidisciplinary research has covered three different levels of analysis: abnormalities in the microscopic brain structure, dopamine dysfunction at a neurochemical level, and interactions… CONTINUE READING
