Towards psychoinformatics with machine learning and brain imaging

Informatics in the psychological sciences brings fascinating challenges as concepts or pathologies have fuzzy boundaries and are hard to quantify. Brain imaging brings rich data on the neural substrate of these concepts, yet it is a non trivial link.

I will discuss how machine learning can bridge brain images to behavior: to describe better brain activity, or to extract biomarkers of pathologies, individual traits, orcognition.
