I'm not sure that there is such a huge void. I think several biomedical
engineering departments often bridge across this chasm. I for on am a EE,
but switched completely to neurophys. I've heard tho' of a couple of
groups in switzerland and germany. Can dig up the names in a little bit.
Problem with computational neuroscience is that I guess its increasingly
more difficult to publish only simulation studies and more physiologists
have started using models as tools, but they dont stay restricted to only
the computationals apects.
