Since 1994, the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, has been the home of a unique cross-disciplinary Ph.D program in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences. The aim of this program is to create a new kind of brain behavioral scientist who will be biologically and mathematically literate, able to relate experimental data with theoretical/computational modeling and bring new ways of thinking and doing into the field of neuroscience. The courses are research oriented and consist of a core curriculum in neuroscience (including behavioral, computational and cognitive neuroscience), psychology, physics, and the mathematical concepts and tools of complex, nonlinear dynamical systems. Students learn how medical imaging techniques, laboratory research, and analytical and computational methods can be combined to offer powerful and unique insights into the human brain, its relation to mind and behavior and disorders thereof.
Applications are welcomed until February 15, 2014.
