According to FAPESP --the São Paulo Research Foundation--, the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics has released the first version of the free software "Neuroscience Experiments System" (NES), a software that helps to organize, control and manage neurophysiological data.

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (CEPID NeuroMat)'s development team launched in October, 2014 the first version of the Neuroscience Experiments System (NES), an open-source software to manage clinical data gathered in hospitals and research institutions.

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. On November, 26, 2014, a researcher from the University of São Paulo's Laboratory of Biomagnetism (Biomag Lab), at Ribeirão Preto, Victor Hugo de Oliveira e Souza, presented to the NeuroMat technology-transfer team an open-access, free software to help signal visualization and analysis, the Motor Evoked Potentials Hunter (MEPHunter). According to Souza, the assessment of electrophysiological data is currently a time-consuming step in experimental procedures, and the MEPHunter is a means of making this step more efficient. “Most researchers spend many hours learning computer programming to write scripts to analyze their own data. This is related to many available softwares being difficult to use, with no graphical user interface or limited number of functionalities,” he explained. The Biomag Lab team started to develop MEPHunter in 2011. This software has been designed to work specifically with experiments that use surface electromyography (sEMG) data recorded in transcranial magnetic stimulations (TMS).
