What will I learn?

The graduate program "Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience" is a member of the Gottingen Graduate Center for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). It is hosted by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Gottingen and is conducted jointly by the University of Gottingen, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, the German Primate Center, and the European Neuroscience Institute Gottingen.

The research-oriented program is taught in English and opens to students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in physics, computer science, life sciences, mathematics, medicine, or related fields.

Understanding the computational capabilities of neural systems requires a unique mix of theoretical, computational and biological skills that were in the past distributed across different disciplines mainly biology, physics, computer science, psychology, and medicine. The graduate program “Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience” is designed to bring these fields together thus creating a new generation of scientists that are equally at home with the thoroughly quantitative and mathematical mode of thought of the exact sciences and with the complexities of real nervous systems.
