UK Nonlinear News Issue 50, April 2008
- New EPSRC funded Network: UK Mathematical Neuroscience Network (MNN)
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.
