Systems & Computational
Computational, theoretical and systems neuroscience has been a recent focus of development for the neuroscience community at Cambridge. Computational neuroscience is an important research strategy of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute. There are also particular strengths in experimental approaches in this area across a range of departments, including the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and the Department of Engineering. Systems neuroscience at Cambridge is increasingly dependent on theory to describe and analyse complex systems, as well as beginning to take an evolutionary approach. A wide range of techniques is used in this field and this is set to expand. A new Systems Biology Institute is being developed to provide a focus for genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics.
