Computational Neuroscience Programs in different departments?

Main Question or Discussion Point

So I have been looking into different computational neuroscience programs lately, and I'm wondering what the difference is between departments. Some comp neurosci programs are housed in applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, or biology while others are just in the neuroscience department. I'm curious how the courses, application requirements, and research might differ between them. Mainly, I'm concerned about the research.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

*also I'm talking about PhD programs*

The difference in the departments is, well, the departments. Comp neuroscience programs housed in mathematics tend to be, thus, more mathematics driven. There are of course many different approaches to neuroscience so it's not surprising that the research tend to show up in different fields.

If you're interested in grad school, you should research what approach most interests you and look up the research being done on the schools faculty page.
