Computational Neuroscience Bannner

Computational Neuroscience

Computational neuroscience applies modeling techniques that are biologically plausible formulations of neuronal function. This approach can be used to test specific hypotheses about the full range of brain function from membrane dynamics to large-scale neural systems and combined with a variety of measurement techniques including electrophysiology, 2-photon imaging, optogenetics, and quantitative behavior.
