Terry Sejnowski

Group Leader @The Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Professor @University of California

Terrence Sejnowski is a pioneer in computational neuroscience and his goal is to understand the principles that link the brain to behavior.

His laboratory uses both experimental and modeling techniques to study the biophysical properties of synapses and neurons and the population dynamics of large networks of neurons.

He has published over 300 scientific papers and 12 books, including The Computational Brain, with Patricia Churchland.He holds a PhD in physics from Princeton University and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School.

He was on the faculty at the Johns Hopkins University and he now holds the Francis Crick Chair at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies and is also a Professor of Biology at the University of California, San Diego, where he is co-director of the Institute for Neural Computation and co-director of the NSF Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center.

He is also the President of the Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Foundation and has received many honors including the Neural Network Pioneer Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Wright Prize for interdisciplinary research.
