The Goalkeeper Game is a computer game being developed by the NeuroMat team since June 2015, associated to the experimental protocol being developed with plasticity in brachial plexus avulsion. In this game, brain signatures are evaluated through the performance of the participant in guessing the next direction chosen by the penalty-taker. The system records the sequence of guesses of the player, who must identify the context tree model used by a virtual penalty-taker.
NES is a web-based system that provides neuroscience experiments data and metadata record facilities in a secure and user-friendly platform. It was designed to provide a single repository for the experimental data of an entire research laboratory, group, or project. NES is a free software tool, developed using open technologies and tools that can be easily installed and used in any research laboratory. Its modular structure and web interface provide an intuitive use of its data management functionalities. NES was developed to combine experimental data with its provenance information. The system also allows recording of additional data for experimental volunteers, such as information on clinical history and socio-demographic data. NES requires the experimenter to record in detail each step involved in the experimental protocol before storing collected primary data. The experimental protocol is described as a workflow, which can contain both sequential and parallel steps. NES uses a standardized data model in neuroscience, enabling interoperability with other initiatives for data representation standardization. NES is licensed under Mozilla Public License version 2.0 and its source code and documentation are available at github.com/neuromat/nes.
The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat), funded by FAPESP, has chosen web, collaborative platforms as its main line of action in terms of science dissemination. This decision was made in 2014 and now the RIDC has become a relevant institutional contributor to Wikimedia projects and the largest institutional contributor on Mathematics on Wikipedia, according to reports from the Outreach Dashboard, that monitors institutional programs and activities on Wikimedia projects.
