The Transcontinental Computational Psychiatry Workgroup (TCPW) organizes a monthly web-based meeting and a computational psychiatry satellite meeting with the Society of Biological Psychiatry. We hope to foster discussion and exchange between those involved in computational psychiatry—a rapidly growing, highly multidisciplinary field.

Videos of past meetings are here.

This is the second talk in a new series jointly organized by TCPW and Machine Learning in Clinical Neurosciences in collaboration with Seyed Kia, Andre Marquand and Thomas Wolfers.

The human cerebral cortex is implicated in a wide range of neurological and
psychiatric disorders. However, current methods for comparing cortical
organisation, across populations of controls and patients, remain low
powered due to the impact of considerable natural variation of cortical
shape and organisation, which confounds standard approaches for analysis
based on image registration. In this talk I will describe the challenges,
provide a brief tutorial to practices for cortical analysis and then
describe new methods developed using surface and volumetric deep learning,
which may help us start to address these problems.
