In the opening chapters of this volume, we outlined a series of challenges facing psychiatry, as well as a description of its various promises, and suggested that taking a computational perspective could potentially illuminate a way forward. In this concluding chapter, we revisit these challenges and promises, in the context of what transpired at this Ernst Strüngmann Forum, to highlight the connections between the various themes raised. In particular, we will bring out the points of agreement and disagreement between the discussion groups and the chapters that arose from those discussions. We conclude with a description of the efforts, current and ongoing, to bring the potential synergy between psychiatry and computational neuroscience emphasized in this volume to a reality in the scientific and clinical arenas.

Keywords:   Strüngmann Forum Report, Bayesian Integrative Framework, biomarkers, complexity, computational nosology, computational perspective, diagnostic nosology, failure modes, heterogeneity
