Computational neuroscience brings many ideas and tools associated with
computation to the study of the nervous system. Major influences have come
from the success of biophysical models of neural activity, the enduring
appeal of the brain-as-computer metaphor, and the increasing prominence of
statistical and machine learning methods throughout science. Here in
Pittsburgh we have an exceptionally large and vibrant community of
neuroscientists who develop and/or apply cutting-edge computational methods
in their work.  We encourage qualified and motivated students to apply to
the graduate Program in Neural Computation sponsored by the Center for the
Neural Basis of Cognition.  The Program is jointly run through Carnegie
Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, and seeks to train high
caliber PhD students in the growing field of computational neuroscience.
Applicants seeking to merge experimental and computational training are
especially encouraged to apply.
