NeuroMat in the Media: news about the Center


The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) is a center of mathematics whose mission is to develop the new mathematics needed to construct a Theory of the Brain accounting for the experimental data gathered by neuroscience research.

Mathematician Antonio Galves coordinates the center. Hosted by the University of São Paulo, the RIDC NeuroMat was established in 2013, with support from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

The RIDC NeuroMat has an interdisciplinary team, bringing together researchers in mathematics, computer science, statistics, neuroscience, biology, physics, and communication, among other disciplines.

RIDC NeuroMat leads a worldwide university network, with ramifications that sprawl to several high-level research institutions in Brazil, Latin America, the United States, and Europe. Most research output has had co-authors from more than one country, thus contributing to putting NeuroMat at the center of a blossoming international scientific cooperation around Neuromathematics.

Alongside a research team that focuses on the scientific challenges pertaining to Neuromathematics, NeuroMat has active technology-transfer and dissemination teams.

A.C. Roque da Silva Filho (USP), C. D. Vargas (UFRJ), E. Hamburger (USP) ("in memorian"), F. J. da Paixão Filho (UNICAMP), J. Stolfi (UNICAMP), O. Baffa (USP) and P. A. Ferrari (USP) are the co-principal investigators.

D. Brillinger (UC Berkeley), F. Guerra (Roma “La Sapienza”), L. Cohen (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke), M. Diesmann (Jülich), and W. Szpankowski (Purdue/NSF CSoI) are NeuroMat’s International Advisory Board.
