We are in a tremendously exciting time in Biological Psychiatry. The new tools available to study the brain and behavior are unparalleled, and yet these remarkable developments- from optogenetic approaches in neural circuits to complex genomics to digital phenotyping - bring great challenges.  How do we address the enormous amount of data, the complexity and need for integrated approaches, and the need for paradigm shifts in our thinking and methodology?  Fortunately, from other areas of biology, science, and social technology, new approaches to complex analysis may bring remarkable insights to our field.
The 2017 meeting theme, "Networks and Complexity in Biology, Brain and Behavior," promises to bring an unparalleled line-up of terrific plenary speakers and symposia, addressing fascinating new approaches to complexity in neural function and activity, from mice to human, and towards understanding language to social networks. While doing a deep dive into cutting-edge neuroscientific approaches, we will seek insights from Cancer Genomics and Multimodal Networks.  Together, these efforts aim to generate exciting discussions and approaches to next generation discovery.
We are very excited for this stimulating and interactive meeting with your participation, and we encourage your attendance at the Society’s 72nd Annual Scientific Meeting  May 18-20, 2017 in San Diego.
Kerry Ressler, MD, PhD - President
Paul Holtzheimer, MD - Chair, Scientific Program Committee
