Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience

The Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience Research Group (CTNRG) brings together theoretical and experimental researchers from across Duke who are interested in understanding and developing formal mathematical models to describe the brain’s processing of information. The aims of the group are to increase the community’s understanding of computational and theoretical approaches to studying the brain, to share ongoing research, and to foster collaborations, especially between theorists and experimentalists.

The group meets Thursdays from 12-1 p.m. in Bryan 301, alternating between presentations of ongoing work from both local and external speakers and journal club discussions of recent published work in the field. The group is funded and administered by the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, and is open to anyone who is interested in attending.

Please note: As of March 16, 2020, all campus meetings and conferences have been canceled, due to public health concerns related to Covid-19. That includes CTNRG events. We do not yet know how long this will be in effect. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
