The field of computational neuroscience is rapidly expanding, as is the development of mathematical and computational approaches and opportunities for application. In 2002, a small group in Southern Ontario met to discuss methods and problems in this field.

This was initiated by Richard Zemel (Computing Science, Toronto), Frances Skinner (Toronto Western Research Institute and University of Toronto), and Randy McIntosh (Rotman Research Institute and University of Toronto), and an extended group developed, uniting scientists from the University of Toronto, York University, McMaster University, and the University of Waterloo. CNUCs (Computational Neuroscientists of Upper Canada) was born (see the June 2003 Fields Newsletter).

This group has organized a number of activities (see 'past activities').
The primary motivation of CNUCs is to promote the exchange of information between experimentalists and computational modellers in order to investigate how computational and mathematical techniques can be used to address critical issues in the field of neuroscience. In January 2006, CNUCs officially joined the Centre for Mathematical Medicine (CMM) at the Fields Institute.
