Our current research falls into two broad categories: natural computing and theoretical computer science. Our most recent research activities have been focussed on the mathematical and computational modelling of genetic processes as well as analyzing and modelling macroscopic functional connectivity in the brain.
One of our projects is highlighted in this 90 second IBM commerical .
You can read about some of our recent applied neuroscience research at itbusiness.ca, in Biotechnology Focus, in Hospital News, on IBM’s Smarter Planet blog or watch another video produced by our partners at IBM. You can also watch Mark give a full length lecture for the general public that puts our work in historical perspective and listen to him talk about the power of the theory of computing on syndicated radio program Science for the People.
We also maintain an academic interest in the interaction between the technologies and concepts of computer science and the arts.
