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»

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...
