“The Computational Neuroscience program here at UChicago has provided me with the knowledge, training, and confidence to pursue my ambitions. The rigorous coursework perfectly addressed my weaknesses, coming from a non-computational background. My network of mentors, friends, and staff have also greatly fostered and supported my success as a graduate student.”

Graduate Student in the laboratory of David Freedman
David Freedman, my adviser, has been instrumental in transforming my abstract research goals into a project that is finite, reasonably tractable, and that will hopefully address the core of those goals -- while still encouraging the use of new techniques and experimental paradigms. The series of three theoretical neuroscience courses, taught by Nicolas Brunel and Stephanie Palmer, were also highly influential in my thinking about neuroscience, both generally and as it relates to my project.
