Mind, Brain, Computation and Technology membership is founded on the idea that contemporary research about the emergent functions of the nervous system often requires the integration of experimental investigations with computation and advanced technologies.
Membership in the center supports PhD students from empirical, computational, technical or theoretical backgrounds as they stretch beyond the traditional boundaries of their department or lab to learn complementary interdisciplinary approaches, advancing their research and helping them develop into leaders and innovators in their field.
Graduate students who are MBCT members benefit from the opportunity to engage with and participate actively in the large Stanford community of researchers interested in the synergistic approach to investigating the sciences of mind and brain. Students are given access to a menu of options to enhance their training as interdisciplinary scientists. Members are given the opportunity for advising on selecting additional mentors to enhance their research, leadership roles within the community and access to workshops, seminars and a community of scientists with a similar interest in bridging quantitative, computational, technical and experimental approaches to advance neuroscience research. In addition, student members receive funding to travel to conferences or scientific meetings so that they can expand their network, learn about new advances and approaches, and share their work with the community.

Students interested in Mind, Brain, Computation and Technology student membership may also be interested in the NeuroTech graduate program.
