First NeuroMat Young Researchers Workshop: a kickoff for renewed collaborations in Neuromathematics

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) held the First NeuroMat Young Researchers Workshop in São Paulo, from May 5 to May 7, 2015. According to the Scientific Dissemination coordinator, Antonio Carlos Roque, the event achieved its goals of exchanging knowledge between young and senior researchers, and of preparing young researchers for their future challenges in academic life.

NeuroMat organizes meeting to strengthen the relationship between public schooling and contemporary science

On April 11 and 25, around 30 school and university professors gathered to the first NeuroMat Workshop for Public School Teachers. The goal of this workshop was to establish a channel of exchange between educational practices in classrooms and contemporary science, attempting to bring up topics of discussion that are at the frontier of science to bear on school content. This workshop was the result of a partnership between the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat/FAPESP) and the Municipal School Desembargador Amorim Lima, in São Paulo, Brazil.

Advances in the modelling of a system of interacting neurons

How do the membrane potentials of a set of neurons evolve across time? How may we account for influences on these membrane potentials? These questions have been at the core of the scientific agenda of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat), that is dedicated to integrating mathematical modelling and theoretical neuroscience and is funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

A NeuroMat Statistics and Neuroscience course to contribute to public school teaching

FAPESP's Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat) has developed a series of activities and material to contribute to how public school teachers engage with Statistics and Neuroscience. The aim is to partner up and work along with teachers in a systematic effort to present concepts pertaining to Neuromathematics to teenagers. A special focus in this effort is given to introducing students to data setting and analysis.

The virtuous cycle of research, communication and education: an interview with Prof. Antonio Carlos Roque

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat) has ripened its education, culture and communication strategy. A meeting at the University of São Paulo on January, 27, 2015, brought together NeuroMat’s scientific dissemination team as well as Prof. Ernst Hamburger, Prof. Lisbeth Cordani, Prof. Annie Vialà, Prof. Antonio Galves, Prof. André Frazão Helene and Prof. Antonio Carlos Roque. The latter has assumed a leading role in devising NeuroMat’s dissemination strategy.

NeuroMat scientific dissemination to emphasize new media technologies

New technologies have been an especially significant means of disseminating results and outcomes of the FAPESP’s Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat).

A NeuroMat software, NES makes the headlines

The recent release of the initial version of Neuroscience Experiments System (NES), an open-source tool to manage clinical data gathered in hospitals and research institutions, has attracted wide media interest.

MEPHunter, a free software for signal visualization and analysis

NeuroMat, FAPESP's Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics, has become a reference for open-science tools, particularly free software, and has attracted potential partners.

Goals, challenges and horizons of spike sorting

How do we distinguish the activity of one or more neurons in a set of recorded neural activity? How do we assign spikes to different neurons? What mathematical, computational tools are available to sort spikes? These questions, among others, informed a three-day-long training on spike sorting that FAPESP's Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat) hosted in São Paulo at the end of November (25-27), with Prof. Christian Pouzat, a researcher of the Applied Maths Laboratory of the Paris-Descartes University and a specialist in spike sorting

NeuroMat develops an open-source software for the management of neuroscience experimental data

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat) software development team released in October the first module of Neuroscience Experiments System (NES), an open-source tool to manage clinical data gathered in hospitals and research institutions.
