NeuroMat researcher develops Bayesian models to make sense of brain patterns in EEGs

The challenge of developing Bayesian statistical models to make sense of brain patterns registered in Electroencephalograms (EEGs) is the ongoing effort of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat) post doctoral fellow Michelle Ferreira Miranda. Her research is being conducted in a partnership with neuroscientists of the Institute of Neurology Deolindo Couto, from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (INDC/UFRJ), who are also part of the NeuroMat research team.

The challenges of making news reports on cutting-edge, ongoing science

The development of new scientific areas imposes a set of challenges to communicating and disseminating news on such development. Results are in the making, conceptual frameworks remain under construction and often at a high level of abstraction, levels of uncertainty are generally unavoidable.

NeuroMat researchers to take part in Scientific Festival at São Paulo

NeuroMat's researchers Evandro Santos Rocha and Michelle Miranda will take part in the first “Virada Científica", a round-the-clock event of scientific dissemination at the University of São Paulo (USP). Both Miranda and Rocha will be responsible for the conference “Neuroscience's mathematical and computational challenges”, that will occur on October, 11, from 2:30PM to 3:25PM at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME).

New Forms of Scientific Journalism and the CEPID NeuroMat Work

The roundtable "New Forms of Scientific Journalism and the CEPID NeuroMat Work" will discuss renewed means of disseminating science and science-oriented journalism produced in Brazil, on the 25th of September, from 6:30 PM to 10 PM, at the Cásper Líbero School of Journalism, in São Paulo. This event is organized by NeuroMat's Coordination of Scientific Dissemination –NeuroMat is a research center created in 2013 at USP and funded by FAPESP, aiming to integrate mathematical modelling and neuroscience.

Wikipedia may invigorate educational activities

A news piece on uses of the online, collaborative encyclopaedia in educational settings refers to NeuroMat's pioneering Wikipedia Initiative. The general goal of the Initiative is to stimulate members of the research team to work on entries on neuromathematics and pertaining topics in the Portuguese and English versions of Wikipedia. Report by André Jorge de Oliveira, Revista Galileu, 09/11/2014.




The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics is hosted by the University of São Paulo and funded by FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation).
