Pesquisa FAPESP magazine presents: "The Statistician Brain"

NeuroMat's study on "Retrieving the structure of probabilistic sequences of auditory stimuli from EEG data" was featured on the last issue of science communication magazine Pesquisa FAPESP. The piece is called "The Statistician Brain" as NeuroMat's paper relates to a classical idea by Hermann von Helmholtz that the brain acts like a statistician as it models stimuli from the environment.

Dreams can reveal how the process of adapting to the ‘new normal’ is going

This week, "Agência FAPESP" website featured an article about the work developed by neuroscientist Natalia Mota, for her postdoctoral project. The work was also supervised by researchers Sidarta Ribeiro (UFRN) and Mauro Copelli (Federal University of Pernambuco). Both are co-authors of the article and are part of the RIDC NeuroMat.

Neuromathematics research center holds six webinars on mathematics and neurobiology

This week, "Agência FAPESP" website featured an article about the RIDC NeuroMat series of online seminars on mathematics and neurobiology, NeuroMat/NeuroMod webinars 2020 - mathematics and neurobiology intertwined.

The webinars are part of a partnership with theInstitute for Modeling in Neuroscience and Cognition of Université Côte d'Azur (NeuroMod), France. The virtual meetings will take place every two weeks, from April 16 to June 25, 2020, via Google Meet at

NES is the subject of an article on Open Knowledge Foundation

Last month, Open Knowledge Foundation featured an article about the Neuroscience Experiments System Frictionless Tool, also known as NES, a tool developed by the Technology Transfer team of RIDC NeuroMat.

Brain math is the subject of a podcast produced at USP

This week "Agência FAPESP" website featured an article about the new RIDC NeuroMat podcast, specially addressing the publication of the second episode of the program. The aim of the podcast is to spread the research developed by NeuroMat, at the interface between neurobiology and mathematics.

The program addresses three main themes: the neuronal spiking systems model developed by the CEPID NeuroMat team; the statistical framework needed to rigorously address the “statistical brain” conjecture; and the processes of construction and production of the state-of-the science in Brazil right now.
