Computational Brain Sciences at Western
Developing computational analyses, models, and theories to explain the structure and function of the nervous system.
The Computational Brain Sciences Research Group in the Brain and Mind Institute at Western University is an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative team of researchers that seeks to uncover how the brain solves the computational problems that ultimately give rise to intelligent behavior. We build models of how the brain works using new mathematical and statistical ideas. We develop novel analysis techniques that allow us to test such models using the increasingly rich and complex data coming from modern neuroscientific measurement techniques.
To achieve these goals, we draw on expertise in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Mathematics, and Computer Science. What makes our group special is that it is very closely embedded into the strong and vibrant research community in basic and clinical neuroscience at Western.
