Aiming at improving the life quality of people with Parkinson's Disease, the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) has created the network Amparo. It brings together people with the disease, relatives, helpers, students and professionals to establish a flow of exchange to better the understanding of this disease in Brazil and especially connecting knowledge from the frontier of science to health policies and clinical guidelines. (In Portuguese.)
At the 2016 INCF Neuroinformatics conference, held at the University of Reading, UK, Kelly Braghetto, NeuroMat researcher and University of São Paulo professor, presented the demo "NES: a free software to manage data from neuroscience experiments".
Eight videos of the Random Graphs in the Brain workshop, that occurred on Nov, 23-27, 2015, at the University of São Paulo. Streaming was made available by IPTV-USP. Videos in English. More on the meeting, including list of speakers and presentation slides, here.
Models of neural systems should be biologically plausible and statistically efficient.
