A new method to model neuroimaging data could help to predict potential treatment outcomes for patients with mental health disorders. The study by researchers from Pompeu Fabra University, Spain, and the University of Oxford looked specifically at people with mental disorders attributable to diseases of the nervous system such as depression and addiction. The team involved used neuroimaging data of healthy participants who had been given LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and placebo treatments to prove the concept of the new computer model.
