Computational Neuroscience

Boston University faculty are at the forefront of research in Computational Neuroscience. This work includes research led by Prof. Nancy Kopell that explores the dynamics of neural circuits and work pioneered by Prof. Stephen Grossberg on the the functional capabilities of adaptive networks. Faculty use techniques of computational neuroscience to model physiological dynamics of cortical circuits and link this to neurophysiological data. The Graduate Program for Neuroscience includes a track for students studying computational neuroscience in faculty laboratories.
