Amrita Center for Computational Neuroscience has been instituted to comprehend the brain and its neural circuits by devising mathematical models. In contrast to other fields in biology, mathematical thinking and methodology have become entrenched in neuroscience since its very beginning, as witnessed by the classical work of Hodgkin and Huxley. Indeed, important developments in mathematics, and particularly in statistics, as in point processes theory, have their roots in this field. One of the biggest open challenges mathematicians and engineers face, is understanding the complex computation that takes place in our brain... Read more»

Our research involves the development and analysis of computational models in order to study synaptic plasticity, associative memory and information processing in the cerebellum. Other work at the lab is on bio-robotics and neuromorphic hardware besides pedagogical techniques for enhancing biotechnology laboratory education. The Center is a worthy partner of the Indian National Node for Neuro Informatics. Neuroinformatics is materializing into a research area that interlaces information technology and brain research. The prime focus of the research is generally to develop neuroimaging and neuroanalysis techniques that will assist diagnostic procedures... Read more»

Research involves the development and analysis of computational models in order to study synaptic plasticity, associative memory and information processing in the cerebellum. Current focus in theoretical neuroscience studies here at Compneuro Lab is the detailed modeling of cerebellar cells and its network functions. Compneuro Lab has published in reputed journals and books and presented in various conference... Read more»

The Center has members of faculty who impart education to graduate students and post doctoral scholars in courses like Computational Biology, Neurobiology, Molecular and Cell Biophysics in a holistic approach stimulating and nurturing the research interests in them. As is the case with any other course, theoretical knowledge alone cannot quench the thirst of true scholars. These subjects under the purview of researchers at the Center provides robust, live projects for the students to work on and gain rich exposure and vast experience that makes them versatile in these courses and propells a research centered career in future...
