The Centre consists of several labs focused on various areas of theoretical neuroscience (aka computational neuroscience). At present, the Centre consists of faculty members from Applied Mathematics, Biology, Psychology, Engineering, Philosophy, Statistics, Computer Science, and their students. The Centre has established a unique Graduate Program in theoretical neuroscience and hosts a regular academic colloquium series. The Centre also hosts the annual public Waterloo Brain Day lectures.
