Clinical Brain Profiling; A future Diagnostic System for Psychiatry

Even though everyone talks about the importance of neuroscience to psychiatry, in reality the common psychiatric clinical work is unrelated to neuroscience. The diagnostic taxonomy used by psychiatrists (the DSM) is not related to the brain, and none of the advanced insights gained from neuroscience has reached all the way to everyday clinical work of the psychiatrist.
Clinical Brain Profiling (CBP) is a novel and unique approach for conceptualizing mental disorders designed to overcome this problem. Using integrated knowledge from complex-system-theories, neural-computation, neuroscience, psychology, neurology and psychiatry, it is possible to generate a testable-prediction conceptual framework that re-conceptualizes mental disorders as brain disorders.
In my talk I will explained the theoretical background for a novel diagnostic approach to mental disorders, and will show how it is relevant to the clinician at the forefront of the clinical setting,
