Information processing in the brain

  1. Feb 25, 2012 #1
    I've always wanted to study something that has to do with how information is processed in the brain. I don't know if this sounds silly but almost like "reading" the brain. Perhaps like data/mathematical modelling? I don't really know what educational path I must choose. I am thinking that the choices consist of neuroscience, applied math, bioinformatics, computational biology, biomedical engineering. I will be applying to universities in Quebec & Ontario. There are just so many programs that I don't which will be the best interdisciplinary approach. Also note that I love math, probably more than any other course that I can think of. I understand that I'll most likely have to do graduate studies too.

    P.S. Dos UofT have a neuroscience program at the St. George Campus?

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    (Theoretical) Computer Science would be a good option. Here you learn about computation and data representation, which provides a good background for graduate level neuroinformatics.
