We use mathematics and engineering to understand the dynamics of the brain and how it represents and processes information.

Professor Gabriel A. Silva

Mathematical Neuroscience

Theoretical and computational neuroscience with the goal of understanding the brain as a system, and what happens when it fails in disease.


Developing nanotechnologies that interface with the biological brain in order to restore clinical function. 


neuromimetic algorithms

Our newest research direction: Taking what we know about the dynamics of the biological brain to develop neuromimetic (i.e. neural imitating) algorithms for non-biological engineered systems.
