Computational Neuroscience

Computational Neuroscience constitutes one of three research fields under the research category of Computational Biology at IMT.

Computational Neuroscience

The increasing use of methods from mathematics, computer science and theoretical physics in the exploration of biological systems is one of the hallmarks of today's science. This is due to great advances in the understanding of living systems, the establishment of new experimental techniques providing large amounts data, methodological advances in mathematical modelling, and the continuing growth in available computer power for numerical calculations and simulations.

The research of the Computational Neuroscience group covers the following research areas: 

  • Mathematical modeling of biological nerve cells and networks of nerve cells
  • Developing methods for effective stochastic simulation of network of nerve cells
  • Developing methods to measure the activity in large groups of nerve cells
