ABSTRACT: Machine learning offers potential for improved diagnostic accuracy, early detection, and prediction of patient response to treatment in psychiatry. Encouraging early results in this area used small sample sizes (eg: n=20). Moving toward larger samples is an important next step but introduces challenges in terms of patient heterogeneity and data collection from multiple sites. I will discuss our work applying machine learning to MRI and fMRI brain images, as well as clinical data, in multiple psychiatric disorders, using medium to large samples (n=75 up to n=1000).
