Mit mathematischen Modellen Schizophrenie erkennen
Forschern der ETH und Universität Zürich ist es gelungen, anhand von mathematischen Modellen verschiedene Subtypen von Schizophrenie zu identifizieren. Das bereitet den Weg für zukünftige präzisere Diagnosen und gezieltere Therapien.
Diese Forschungsarbeit wird von SystemsX.ch unterstützt (RTD-Projekt Neurochoice).
