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.
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).
group has organized a number of activities (see 'past
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.
