who we are
The Oxford Foundation for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence is an independent registered charity that aims to raise funds for teaching and research in theoretical neuroscience. We have been established to further the development of advanced mathematical and computer modelling techniques in brain science.
our work to understand the brain
Our computer models of the brain are needed to help scientists interpret experimental data and develop a detailed understanding of the processing principles used by the brain. Uncovering the principles of the brain will inform biomedical research aimed at developing new treatments for neurological disorders.
where we are
OFTNAI is currently supporting a computer modelling laboratory headed by Dr Simon Stringer within the Oxford University Department of Experimental Psychology. This theoretical work complements experimental brain research taking place in Oxford and at other institutions around the world.
