NeuroMat realiza encontro para fortalecer diálogo entre a educação básica e a ciência contemporânea

Nos últimos dias 11 e 25 de abril, cerca de 30 educadores dedicaram seus sábados para realizar o primeiro Ciclo de Atividades do CEPID NeuroMat para Professores da Escola Básica (Matemática, Ciências e Áreas Interessadas). A ação é resultado de uma parceria da Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Desembargador Amorim Lima com o Centro de Pesquisa, Inovação e Difusão em Neuromatemática (CEPID NeuroMat), criado em 2013 e financiado pela Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP). Por meio de projetos como este, o CEPID NeuroMat pretende estabelecer um diálogo permanente entre a educação básica e a ciência contemporânea, especialmente a ponta da pesquisa científica.

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.
