New functionalities to store neuroscience data and metadata in NeuroMat’s freely-shared computational tool
The Neuroscience Experiments System (NES) is an open-source tool to manage clinical data gathered in hospitals and research institutions, that the technology-transfer team at FAPESP’s NeuroMat has developed since 2014. The scientific challenge that the development of this tool addresses is that neuroscience experiments generate heterogeneous data formats and complex metadata, such as provenance information, and NES intends to provide a unified repository for data and metadata from different natures (i.e., clinical, imaging, behavioral).

NeuroMat is a research center established in 2013 at the University of São Paulo that is dedicated to integrating mathematical modeling and theoretical neuroscience. Among the core missions of NeuroMat are the creation of a new mathematical system to understanding neural data and the development of neuroscientific open-source computational tools. The research center is headed by Prof. Antonio Galves, from USP's Institute of Mathematics and Statistics, and is funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
