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 (for example, point processes theory), have their roots in this field.
Computational neuroscience research seeks to comprehend how the brain learns and computes to achieve intelligent behavior in addition to interpreting neurological conditions. It is an interdisciplinary endeavor at the intersection of computer science, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, physics, engineering, mathematics, and statistics.
At Amrita, the research involves understanding how neural cells and circuits of cerebellum and interconnected thalamo-cortical circuits function towards movement articulation and other sensory-tactile processes.
