Speaker information

Janaina Mourao-Miranda, Professorial Research Associate, UCL, Janaina is a Professorial Research Associate and Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow at the Computer Science Department, UCL. She leads the Machine Learning and Neuroimaging Lab at UCL. Janaina obtained an MSc degree in Computer Science in 1998 and a PhD in Neuroscience in 2002, both from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). After a period of postdoctoral work at the Department of Neural Computation at Siemens, Munich, Germany (2003–2005) and at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, UK (2005–2009) Janaina was awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowship in 2009 and a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship 2013 to further develop her research at the Computer Science Department at UCL. Over the past

Mental Health through the lens of machine learning applied to neuroimaging.

In this talk, I will present some pioneering examples of how machine learning has been applied to improve diagnosis and prognosis of psychiatric disorders based on brain scans. I will also discuss how machine learning models can help us to map a brain-behavior mental health space which has the potential to improve psychiatric diagnostic classification and identify people at risk of developing mental health disorders.
