Systems Neuroscience

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the understanding of structure and function of neural circuits, systems and networks at all levels (microscale, mesoscale, macroscale), all sensory systems and sensory processing, how neural circuits and brain networks support behavior and cognitive function and computational and theoretical neuromodeling.
