Neurophysics is the branch of neuroscience dealing with the development and use of theoretical concepts and experimental tools typically employed in physics in order to gain information about the nervous system.
The Berg group put emphasis on strong quantitative approaches in neuroscience by including computational neuroscience. In particular, we believe investigating populations of neurons, networks, as opposed to the single-neuron tradition, is crucial. In turn, this will likely spur therapeutic strategies for individuals with neurological conditions, especially spinal cord injuries. Our key research areas are:
