We would like to bring to your attention
a 9-week NSF REU program for undergraduates in the
area of computational neuroscience. We will enroll students
from Biological Sciences, Psychological Sciences, Engineering, Medicine,
Physics and Mathematics.
about the program can be found at the site - http://engineering.missouri.edu/neuroreu/
appreciate if you could pass these on to interested undergraduates from
all the disciplines at your institution.
