Title

Computational Modeling of functional impairments observed in Schizophrenia

Abstract

Schizophrenia has been regularly associated with disruptions in the excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance in cortical micro-circuitry. For instance, psychosis can be formalized as the formation of aberrant beliefs or percepts which could result from such E/I imbalances. However, these two conceptual approaches toward psychosis (inference and circuits) have yet to be correlated. After briefly reviewing empirical and computational studies that enable an integrated understanding of how the brain may generate beliefs along a spectrum ranging from normal to pathology, I will expose how frameworks such as predictive-coding and circular inference may account for hallucinations, delusions and reduced susceptibility to illusions in schizophrenia.
