The aim of computational psychiatry is to describe the relationship between the brain's neurobiology, its environment, and mental symptoms in computational terms. By identifying these relationships, the psychiatric classification and the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness may be improved. Machine learning and graph theory techniques are among the promising methods for characterizing large-scale brain networks, based on functional and structural measures. This presentation will help learners to understand how to apply an integrated physical and mental health care approach to postdeployment care.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify computational methods in the classification of psychiatric disorders
  • Identify the potential of promising biomarkers generated from EEG like entropy in psychiatry 
  • Recognize the contribution and vision of deep learning and artificial intelligence applications in disorder classification and treatment response
  • Recognize the use of Neuromodulation in Brain Injury, Current Perspectives From Neuroimaging and Proteomic Biomarker
  • Choose the appropriate artificial intelligence methods to be used to classify psychiatric disorders by using raw EEG data

How to Earn Credit

Participants who wish to earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ or a certificate of participation may do so by completing all sections of the course including the evaluation. After evaluating the program, course participants will be provided with an opportunity to claim hours of participation and print an official CME certificate (physicians) or certificate of participation (non-physicians) showing the completion date and hours earned. 

Continuing Education Credit

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. 

The APA designates this enduring CME activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
