Neuropsychiatric disorders can be devastating not only to individuals, but also increasingly affect society. While there has been some progress, the paucity of reliable animal models and inadequacies of current treatments indicate that new research strategies are needed. The review outlines how whole-brain computational modelling can be used to generate new insights into fundamental mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders and possibly provide novel, more effective therapeutic interventions, e.g. through drug discovery and new targets for deep brain stimulation.
