Representing Neuromathematics: complex images for science dissemination

The NeuroMat dissemination team has led an experimental project to produce graphic video representations of papers from the NeuroMat research team. The goal is to experiment a new language for scientific dissemination that both provides an understanding of the research process and contributes to the development of a new line of research on how to represent science. A recent output has been the publication of a video on the article "Reduced functional connectivity within the primary motor cortex of patients with brachial plexus injury," from 2016.

NeuroMat opportunities

NeuroMat Facebook Highlights

Ioannis Papageorgiou is one of the newest members to join NeuroMat's team as a postdoctoral researcher. He is currently working on investigating probabilistic and analytical aspects of neural networks.

NeuroMat hosted two seminars on December 7: "Bottom-up and top-down modelling in cellular neurophysiology" and "Somatotopic representation in a spatially extended version of the Potjans-Diesmann cortical microcircuit model: An organization and reorganization study".

The NeuroMat Parkinson Network, AMPARO, will release on Monday the last video lecture of 2017. These lectures have been watched on the aggregate around 4,000 times this year.
