Computational Neuroscience is a young, growing discipline within the exciting field of neuroscience. The Computational Neuroscience degree is offered by TU Berlin University


Key facts

Computational Neuroscience offered by TU Berlin University uses theoretical approaches from a variety of disciplines including mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering to understand the brain. Computational neuroscience integrates experiments, data analysis and modelling. Furthermore, it makes a scientific language available that can be used across disciplines and levels for neurobiology, cognitive science and information technology. Computational neuroscience may thus help to solve long-standing research questions, contribute to better prevention and treatment strategies for neural disorders, lead to unified concepts about biological processes, advance information technologies and human-machine interactions and, last but not least, provide new insight for designing efficient strategies for teaching and learning.
