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.

LimeSurvey, a key tool for open-science data building

The NeuroMat technology-transfer team has been active in the creation and spreading of free and open-source software tools and materials on how to use efficiently these tools. Such activities are in tune with the commitment that NeuroMat, the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics, has embraced in relying exclusively on open-science tools and becoming a reference in open science.

NeuroMat releases report of first-year activities

NeuroMat released at the end of September the First Report of Activities. This document is required by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), the funding entity of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat), and presented detailed accounts of scientific, dissemination and technology-transfer activities.
