A brain soccer derby: a NeuroMat story by Antonio Galves
Imagine a packed Maracanã soccer stadium, on a day of a derby of Flamengo against Fluminense, in Rio de Janeiro. Seventy thousand fans are in the stadium. Now imagine that someone can hear the crowd, but has no view over what happens on the field. He tries to make sense of what happens in the game —scores, good hits, fouls, penalty kicks, red cards— based on the crowd’s reactions. NeuroMat scientific director Antonio Galves presents a story on the challenges Neuromathematicians face.
NIRA - NeuroMat Individual Report of Activities
The NeuroMat Individual Report of Activities (NIRA) is a system that can be used by Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) supported by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). Its goal is to assist in preparing the annual report of activities, a document that is submitted annually to FAPESP.

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).
