IMPRS on Computational Methods in Psychiatry and Ageing Research

The International Max Planck Research School on Computational Methods in Psychiatry and Ageing Research (IMPRS COMP2PSYCH) teaches and trains concepts and methods from computer science and statistics in relation to substantive research questions in psychiatry and lifespan psychology. In close collaboration with the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, it gives pre-doctoral fellows the opportunity to learn, apply, and develop computational and statistical methods that foster our understanding of individual development from childhood to old age, with an emphasis on mental illness and healthy cognitive ageing. Its overarching objective is to equip pre-doctoral researchers with computational and statistical methods that permit them to describe, explain, and predict individual development and psychopathological manifestations at neural and behavioural levels of analysis.
