Center for Complex Systems and Brain Science
Is a Graduate Degree in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences for Me?
Complex Systems and Brain Scientists use mathematical models and experimental measurements to study the mechanisms that underlie complex behavior in systems from molecules and cells to the brain and groups of people. This new knowledge deals with the functioning of the normal brain, the treatment of neurological diseases, and possible rehabilitation, from early childhood to old age.
Careers in Complex Systems and Brain Sciences
Research in universities and industries on physical and biological systems, participating in interdisciplinary teams in biomedical science, and teaching and education in universities and colleges.
