About Us

The Center for Theoretical Neuroscience was established at Columbia University in 2004 as part of the Swartz Program in Theoretical Neuroscience.  The Center is located in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, an elegant space that allows for extensive interaction within the theory group and with the laboratories with which we collaborate.  Our goal is to establish, through the quality of the Center's research, the excellence of its trainees, and the impact of its visitor, dissemination, and outreach programs, a new cooperative paradigm that will move neuroscience to unprecedented levels of discovery and understanding.  We believe we have one of the most exciting and interactive environments anywhere for bringing theoretical approaches to Neuroscience.
