Graduate Training in Systems Neuroscience in the
Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute
of Johns Hopkins University
*******************************************************************

The Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute is dedicated to the study of
the neural mechanisms of higher brain functions using modern
neurophysiological, anatomical, and computational
techniques. Applications are invited for pre-doctorate fellowships by
students with a strong interest in systems neuroscience. In addition
to students with training in neuroscience or neurobiology, we
particularly encourage students with a background in quantitative or
computational sciences such as mathematics, physics, engineering or
computer science. For those students, previous biological or neuroscience
training is not required but students must show a strong commitment to
combine theoretical and experimental techniques to understanding brain
function.

Faculty in the Mind/Brain Institute include:

Guy McKhann (emeritus)
Vernon Mountcastle (emeritus)
Gian Poggio (emeritus)
Ken Johnson (Director): Neural Mechanisms of Tactile Perception and Object Recognition
Ed Connor: Shape Processing in Higher Level Visual Cortex
Stewart Hendry: Functional Organization of the Primate Visual System
Rudiger von der Heydt: Neural Mechanisms of Visual Perception
Steven Hsiao: Neurophysiology of Tactile Shape and Texture Perception
Alfredo Kirkwood: Mechanisms of Cortical Modification
Ernst Niebur: Computational Neuroscience
Veit Stuphorn: Neurophysiology of Prefrontal Cortex
Takashi Yoshioka: Neural Mechanisms of Tactile Perception and Object
Recognition

The neuroscience graduate program includes over sixty faculty members
in both clinical and academic departments. In addition, students from
other graduate programs including Biomedical Engineering, Electrical
Engineering, Psychology and Biophysics are part of the Mind/Brain
Institute.
