2014 NIMH Training Program in Cognitive Neurosciences

The INC supports training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Cognitive Neuroscience (NIMH). The Center converges neurobiological, cognitive science, computational and engineering resources for understanding the relationship between the mind and the brain. The Center develops new models of brain dynamics, new signal processing techniques based on these models, and the experimental methods to test them. One goal is to study brain activity that supports social interactions.

Computational Neuroscience Ph.D. training program

The Computational Neuroscience specialization is a new facet of the broader Neuroscience graduate program at UCSD . The goal of the specialization is to train the next generation of neuroscientists with the broad range of computational and analytical skills that are essential to understand the organization and function of complex neural systems.
