NeuroMat mathematicians and physicians collaborate to improve rehabilitation questionnaires

A NeuroMat interdisciplinary group is currently developing new statistical tools toward a new understanding of assessment of stroke rehabilitation, which could eventually lead to more efficient clinical tools to describe and analyze the evolution of patients. Prof. Linamara Rizzo Battistella and Dr. Marcel Simis, from the University of São Paulo's School of Medicine (FM/USP), and Prof. Verónica Andrea González-López and Prof. Jesús Enrique García, from the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation at the University of Campinas (IME/UNICAMP), lead this research group, whose official agenda remains: “The interrelationship of clinical variables collected from stroke patients in rehabilitation.” NeuroMat is the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics, that is coordinated by Prof. Antonio Galves and that was established in 2013 at USP, with funding from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

NeuroMat mathematical models yield basic clues to neural functioning

Mathematicians from the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) are currently working on a new class of mathematical models that could eventually lead to a general theory of the brain, a theory that could be able to explain how the neural system, consisting of billions of neurons and other cells, interacts with an ever-changing environment and generates behaviors. NeuroMat is a state-of-the-art institute, that is coordinated by Prof. Antonio Galves and that was established in 2013 at the University of São Paulo (USP), with funding from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). Twenty senior mathematicians from universities in seven countries are currently involved in this research project.

On NeuroMat

NeuroMat is a research center established in 2013 at the University of São Paulo that is dedicated to integrating mathematical modeling and theoretical neuroscience. Among the core missions of NeuroMat are the creation of a new mathematical system to understanding neural data and the development of neuroscientific open-source computational tools. The research center is headed by Prof. Antonio Galves, from USP's Institute of Mathematics and Statistics, and is funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
