Welcome to the UK Mathematical Neuroscience Network: MNN
Mathematical neuroscience here means an area of neuroscience where mathematics is the primary tool for elucidating the fundamental mechanisms responsible for experimentally observed behaviour.
MNN aims to provide a UK focus for the use of mathematical approaches to problems in neuroscience. The Network will allow and encourage more UK mathematicians to engage in fundamental neuroscience and at the same time tackle substantial mathematical challenges that will be of broader scientific interest to the nonlinear and complex systems community. Importantly, it can draw attention to, and develop, those pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of the brain.
Specific objectives are to:
- establish and maintain a "Mathematical Neuroscience Network" with a balanced membership from experimental and theoretical groups.
- run a number of one-day workshops at a variety of locations in the UK.
- hold an annual meeting in the form of an international conference on Mathematical Neuroscience.
- generate new collaborative projects and develop techniques that cross the boundaries between disciplines and enhance our understanding of neural behaviour.
- report back to members and the wider community on network meetings and progress made within the Network.
- establish a web-based resource for interdisciplinary research in mathematical neuroscience.
Current news and opportunities
International Workshop on Neurodynamics, Castro-Urdiales, Spain, July 14 - 17, 2014. (10 February 2014)
The aim of this workshop is to present an overview of successful achievements in this rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together
different types of applications of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical systems, numerical methods, computational schemes,
dynamical measures,...) to different problems in neuroscience (mononeuronal dynamics, network activity, cognitive problems,...).. Registration deadline is 31st March 2014.
