Neuromathematics, the new brain science

Neuroscience does not have a conceptual frame to interpret in a higher level of abstraction data that are obtained from experiments yet. Such situation may be described as rich in data and poor in theory. Aline Naoe, USP - 04/14/14.

Media coverage on the rise for neuromathematics

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) has contributed to spreading public interest and media coverage on issues pertaining to a renewed theoretical understanding of the brain. This contribution remains part of NeuroMat's dissemination strategy, which aims at bridging the gap between scientific production and public awareness.

NeuroMat mathematical models yield basic clues to neural functioning

Mathematicians from the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) are currently working on a new class of mathematical models that could eventually lead to a general theory of the brain, a theory that could be able to explain how the neural system, consisting of billions of neurons and other cells, interacts with an ever-changing environment and generates behaviors.


NeuroMat mathematicians and physicians collaborate to improve rehabilitation questionnaires

A NeuroMat interdisciplinary group is currently developing new statistical tools toward a new understanding of assessment of stroke rehabilitation, which could eventually lead to more efficient clinical tools to describe and analyze the evolution of patients.





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