Systems, Circuits and Computational Neuroscience Projects
Some examples of projects using systems, circuits and computational approaches are given below.
Please note that this list of supervisors is accurate to date, but may be subject to future changes. Projects shown are examples only, intended to give a flavour of the research taking place in the lab. Supervisors and students will discuss more detailed plans or new directions together after the student has received an offer and is making their choices.
