The Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience is a group of theorists consisting of faculty, postdocs and graduate students. The goal is to develop mathematical and computational models of the underlying neurobiological mechanisms involved in perception, cognition, learning, and motor function. The center collaborates with experimental neuroscience labs in the design of experiments and in the analysis of neural data. We also train students at UC Berkeley in these ideas and methods. Members of the Redwood Center typically have backgrounds in computer science, physics and mathematics, in addition to neuroscience. We seek insight into the workings of the brain at many levels through the continual interaction between theory and experiment.
