Duke University has made significant investments in brain science over the past 15 years, developing the Bryan Alzheimer's Research Center, the Department of Neurobiology, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center (BIAC) and the Center for Neuroengineering (CNeng). These resources are poised to lead Duke to the forefront of research in brain science in the next decade. However, to realize this goal, the experimental efforts are being integrated into an interdisciplinary effort that involves Duke's significant but developing strengths in analysis and computational modeling and neuroengineering. The Program in Neural Analysis (PNA) links the faculty and students in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center and the Center for Neuroengineering by providing the resources, faculty and facility to train pre and post doctoral students in advanced techniques for neural analysis of brain derived data.

The Program also forms the intellectual hub at Duke for research in modelling and analysis of neuroscience data from cellular to the cognitive, and the direct application of new analytic tools in clinical and research neurology and human neuroscience.The Executive committee of the Program will oversee the development of personnel and computational infrastructures for supporting this effort, and growth in the number and quality of courses and seminars dedicated to specific aspects of neural analysis.
