Computational Neuroscience investigates (1) the means by which neural systems process information and (2) theoretical modeling of how neurons and neuronal networks process and store information. This major distinguishes Ohio Wesleyan as the place for students interested in studying computational neuroscience in a liberal arts setting.
About the Major
