    Program receives training grant from the NIMH

    The Computational Neuroscience Program at the University has been awarded a training grant by the National Institutes of Mental Health.

    The grant is a five-year award for $887,000 that will provide stipends and tuition fees for four predoctoral students.

    The Computational Neuroscience Program currently involves 20 faculty members from the four graduate divisions of the University. It offers interdisciplinary training in quantitative approaches to understanding how the brain generates behavior.

    The program maintains a yearlong core sequence in computational neuroscience for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and it facilitates a weekly seminar series.

    Philip Ulinski, Professor and Interim Chair of Organismal Biology & Anatomy, is the principal investigator for the grant.
