Dynamical Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that is focused on the study of how the nervous system generates perception, behavior, and cognition. It is a computational approach that goes beyond traditional structure/function correlations.
Its subdisciplines include such areas as molecular and cellular biology, genetics, computer science, artificial intelligence, nonlinear systems, statistical processes, physics, and aspects of psychology.
The UCSB campus has superb standing faculty in all of these academic disciplines. We have 14 core faculty spanning seven departments who conduct research and provide education in dynamical neuroscience. This program incorporates the individual strengths of existing faculty and builds upon the significant intellectual activity in quantitative approaches to biological phenomena at UCSB.
