The purpose of the OCNS

It is to create a scientific and educational forum for everyone to learn about, to share, to contribute to, and to advance the state of knowledge in computational neuroscience.

  • Computational neuroscience combines mathematical analyses and computer simulations with experimental neuroscience, to develop a principled understanding of the workings of nervous systems and apply it in a wide range of technologies.
  • OCNS promotes meetings and courses in computational neuroscience and organizes the Annual CNS Meeting which serves as a forum for young scientists to present their work and to interact with senior leaders in the field.

The Benefits of Membership

OCNS members can see additional content on this site and have access to more menu options. If you are a computational neuroscientist we strongly encourage you to become a member.

The purpose of the Organization for Computational Neurosciences is to create a scientific and educational forum for students, scientists, other professionals and the general public to learn about, to share, to contribute to, and to advance the state of knowledge in computational neuroscience.

What is computational Neuroscience?

Computational neuroscience is the study of brain function in terms of the information processing properties of the structures that make up the nervous system. It is an interdisciplinary science that links the diverse fields of neuroscience, cognitive science and psychology with electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics and physics.
