Studying at the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience

If you are interested in studying at the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience (CTN), please look through information on our graduate program, as well as related courses (graduate and undergraduate) at the University of Waterloo. The research opportunities section discusses information for undergraduate, graduate, and other visiting researchers. You can also read the lab descriptions to decide which supervisor would be most appropriate for your interests and contact him or her directly. Please contact us if you have further questions.

Here is a profile of a not-so-recent recent CTN graduate, Dr. Bryan Tripp.
