    Schools What are the best schools for Neurophysics/Comp. Neuroscience

    thanks for the washington link. I see there's a lot of physicists there. Cincinnatus: Yeah neural computation is a big umbrella for other stuff. I actually prefer the divorce of neural networks from the biology. But at the same time, I'd like to see some kind of biological application in the...

    Schools What are the best schools for Neurophysics/Comp. Neuroscience

    I've already graduated. Are there any good internships to look for? I know LANL has a neural computation group. I'm sure I could do a one year thing with them. I had to give a presentation in a quantum computation course about using neural networks for image processing, except only applying...

    Schools What are the best schools for Neurophysics/Comp. Neuroscience

    that's good to know. I have a request: Can you send me a couple of places to apply for an internship next year? I have a job working for the patent office, but would like something a bit closer to the field I'd be going into. I presume you went straight from college to grad school? What...

    Schools What are the best schools for Neurophysics/Comp. Neuroscience

    Thanks guys for all the recommendations and links!!! mathcompsci: I did a double major in Biochemistry (B.S.) and Physics (B.A.). I worked in a neurochemistry lab in the chemistry department and neurosurgery department at a hospital. That was when I was premed. Once I graduated, I...

    Schools What are the best schools for Neurophysics/Comp. Neuroscience

    Hey guys, I'll be applying for Physics and Comp. Neuroscience PhD programs in the Fall. Any good schools worth applying to? Which schools consider "neuro-related" physics their strength? All I know is on the East Coast, UNC has a Neurophysics lab, and on the West Coast, Berkeley & UCSD are...

    Former Premed wants to Quantum Computation/Computational Neuroscience

    yeah..i very much agree f95toli. I'm just interested in the two fields as far as where they can take us in the future wrt to AI and other applications. I took a QC course and the closest thing I found to penrose was a Quantum Neural Network. I think a biological model of a QNN would not be...

    Former Premed wants to Quantum Computation/Computational Neuroscience

    Hey guys! I have a double degree in Biochem (B.S.) & Physics (B.A.) from Virginia, and I wanted to request some career guidance. Initially in college, I was a premed staying on the Biochem. Then I discovered the awesomeness that was Feynman and rest of physics. String theory really pulled...

    Courses Advanced Physics Online Courses

    Hi, I just finished up a B.A. in Physics at UVa, but I had some major holes in my curriculum. I took Modern physics, QM, and then GR, but never took E&M and Stat. Mech. Aside from MIT OCW, are there universities that offer advanced physics online courses for grade so I can patch these classes up...

    Could a Solar Flare destroy life on our planet?

    Some kind of Man-Made Faraday Cage Pertaining to Gigantic solar flares, would it be theoretically possible to construct some kind of Faraday Cage around the Earth temporarily until all the protons are absorbed by the conducting metal? I was watching on Discovery's Planet Storm that a huge solar...
