Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS)
CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA) is pleased to announce the results of the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience competition, a new partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Computational neuroscience provides a theoretical foundation and a rich set of technical approaches for understanding the functions of complex neurobiological systems, building on the theory, methods, and findings of computer science, neuroscience, and numerous other disciplines. Through the CRCNS program, participating NSF Directorates and NIH Institutes support innovative interdisciplinary collaborative research to make significant advances in the understanding of nervous system function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.
Two applications were received by the National Science Foundation for consideration which contained a Canadian component. Both applications were approved for funding.
