Research Networks


Complex Oscillatory Systems: Modeling and Analysis. In this EU-funded Marie Skłodowska Curie ITN, 15 ESRs are being trained in nonlinear dynamics, numerical methods, statistical mechanics and, where needed, basics of neuroscience, physiology, and system biology.


Understanding Ageing and Mobility. Funded by the EU as part of the Erasmus Mundus program, this international training network involves 40-odd PhD students studying age-related changes in human movement.


Assessing Arm Function Recovery Post-Stroke. Goal of this EU-funded 4D-EEG project is to develop innovative methods for accurate localization of brain activity patterns and quantification of the interactions between multiple brain areas.
