Computational Neuroscience is a young, growing discipline within the exciting field of neuroscience. It uses theoretical approaches from a variety of disciplines including mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering to understand the brain. Computational Neuroscience integrates experiment, data analysis and modeling. Furthermore, it makes a scientific language available that can be used across disciplines and levels for neurobiology, cognitive science, and information technology. Computational Neuroscience may thus help to solve long-standing research questions, contribute to better prevention and treatment strategies for neural disorders, lead to unified concepts about biological processes, advance information technologies and human-machine interactions and, last but not least, provide new insight for designing efficient strategies for teaching and learning.

With the aim of fostering a new generation of scientists who have been trained in both mathematical / computational skills and neuroscientific methodologies the Bernstein Center Berlin has set up two international, interdisciplinary graduate Masters and PhD programs.
