Encouraging education work in Brazil

A group of Wikimedians based at USP’s Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) has dramatically improved information available on the Portuguese Wikipedia on topics in neuroscience and mathematics. With a grant funded by São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), they’re working hard to bring more science information to the Portuguese Wikipedia. LiAnna Davis, Wiki Edu Blog, 03/20/2017.

Project strives for improving the quality of life of people with Parkinson's Disease

On April 11, the World Parkinson's Disease Day is celebrated; and this year the celebration is more special, since it has been 200 years since the first description of the disease, by James Parkinson. "We have progressed in the treatment of the disease, since then and especially in the last ten years, but we are still far away from finding a cure," says Maria Elisa Pimentel Piemonte, from USP and NeuroMat.
