The Center for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience (CTCN)
About The Center For Theoretical And Computational Neuroscience
Members of The Center for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience within the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy use computational approaches to study a range of issues that span single-molecule interactions in dendritic spines to networks of interacting plastic neurons. The CTCN is part of The Gulf Coast Consortium in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience (GCC-TCN), and includes faculty from six different Gulf Coast academic institutions: Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), The University of Houston, the UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the UT Medical Branch at Galveston, and the UT Medical School at Houston. The GCC-TCN has fostered collaboration between different labs in our department and departments in different universities. Thus, there is a rich environment for collaboration both within and among institutions.
