John Milton has been working at the interface between mathematics, neuroscience and neurology for over 40 years. His research aims to translate mathematical concepts developed at the blackboard into practical applications that can be tested at the bench top and the bedside. His current research interests range from skill acquisition and decision making by the nervous system to the onset and prediction of epileptic seizures. Interdisciplinary student teams are exposed to problems that lie at the interface between biology and mathematics with the aim of developing implementable solutions.
