    The Encyclopedia of Computational Models of Brain Disorders aims to provide succinct and distilled review articles on various computational and mathematical approaches to brain disorders.

    Computational and mathematical models are widely used in all aspects of neuroscience. They are instrumental in uncovering the neural mechanisms of brain function, because they provide an integrated understanding of phenomena occurring at different levels (e.g., cellular, synaptic, network, systems, behavioral) in both normal and pathological states of the brain. Such an integrative approach is particularly crucial to understand the action of current therapies in brain disorders and provide the rational for the development of new ones.

    Among authors of this encyclopedia are Ahmed Moustafa and Vassilis Cutsuridis (Computational models of Alzheimer's Disease), Markus Dahlem (Computational models of migraine), Edmund Rolls (Models of schizophrenia), Alexandra Seidenstein, Frank Barone and Bill Lytton (Computer modeling of ischemic stroke), Eva Hudlicka (Models of affective disorders), Jon Rubin (Basal ganglia models of Parkinson's disease), Vassilis Cutsuridis (Bradykinesia models of Parkinson's disease), Ghanim Ullah and Steven J. Schiff (Models of epilepsy), Sebastien Helie and Erick Paul (Computational models of cognitive deficits in Parkinson's disease), Ciska Heida (Models of Deep Brain Stimulation) and many others.
