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:

Steering Committee

Current news and opportunities

3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory, University of Reading, June 16 - 18, 2014. (19 Dec 2013)

The 3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory follows a highly successful series of conferences which took place in 2010 and 2012 at the University of Reading. Registration deadline is April 15th 2014.

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.
