The aim of this program is to train scientists who are both
mathematically and biologically literate so that they can fully
participate in multi-disciplinary research to bring new ways of
thinking into neuroscience. Individuals with undergraduate
degrees in any pertinent discipline are invited to apply for
this 5-year training program at the FAU Center for Complex
Systems and Brain Sciences.
Graduate training consists of a core curriculum in nonlinear
dynamics, neuroscience, computational modeling and cognitive
science. Research areas include sensorimotor coordination and
learning, human brain imaging, including functional magnetic
resonance imaging, EEG, brainstem mechanisms of behavior, neural
growth and development, cellulr neurosciences, ion channel
dynamics, speech production and perception, neurolinguistics,
visual perception, music perception and mathematics of complex
