As the complexity of the nervous system becomes more apparent, there is an important role for computational methods in disease research.

In the Patrick Wild Centre, researchers in Informatics are developing tools to automate data collection and are designing computational models that link changes in neurons to behavioural phenotypes.

Informatics in Edinburgh has strong links to Edinburgh Neuroscience and has pioneered various techniques that support Neuroscience research and models that have led to a deeper understanding of the function and plasticity of the nervous system.
