The Volen National
Center for Complex Systems was formed for the purpose of studying
the brain and intelligence. The Center is composed of faculty members
who specialize in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and
a wide range of topics in neuroscience including experimental psychology,
computational neuroscience, and cellular and molecular neurobiology.
The Center is an interdisciplinary
group with the ability to perform scientific analysis of the brain
from the cellular and molecular levels to the cognitive and computational.
The Center aims to increase
knowledge within each of its individual component disciplines, as
well as to foster interactions among the components, giving rise to
new scientific initiatives.
Interested students should
concentrate in one of these component disciplines: biochemistry, biology,
chemistry, computer science, linguistics and cognitive science, neuroscience,
physics, or psychology.
