Understanding how the brain computes
Washington University in St Louis is home to a vibrant community of researchers addressing a wide range of issues in Computational Neuroscience. As befitting the highly interdisciplinary nature of the field, these researchers are spread over a wide range of departments on both the Medical School and Danforth campuses. A Computational Neuroscience Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 4pm to discuss recent advances in the field.
For PhD students Washington University in St Louis also offers a training pathway in Cognitive, Computational and Systems Neuroscience (CCSN)
Some related graduate programs include Neuroscience, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Systems Science and Mathematics, Computational and Data Sciences, Computational and Systems Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Statistics.
