Computational Neuroscience, Minor

The Neuroscience Program has established a new cross-school, inter-disciplinary Minor in Computational Neuroscience, which is an emerging field involving the application of quantitative methods to the analysis of neural circuits and the brain. In brief, the Minor requires eight courses, four core classes and four electives, the latter encouraging breadth. No more than five of these courses can also be used to fulfill requirements for another major or minors.
