About the event:

Dr. Insel will talk about leading edge technologies that may one day be of impact to the care of patients suffering from psychiatric conditions. He will discuss the advent of digital phenotyping, modern cognitive and linguistic assessments, and powerful computational approaches applied to complex data which now permit a deeper analysis of behavior than would have been possible even five years ago. Will this phenomic analysis in psychiatry serve the same role as molecular profiling in oncology? Will subgroups selected by modern phenomics be predictive of treatment response or clinical course? This presentation will argue that a detailed analysis of behavior and cognition combined with functional connectomics can become a pathway to precision medicine for psychiatry.
