Neuroinformatics combines neuroscience and informatics research to develop and apply the advanced tools and approaches that are essential for major advances in understanding the structure and function of the brain.
WELCOME to the Neuroinformatics Node Homepage!
This is a network of UK researchers working in the emerging field of neuroinformatics. Formed in January 2008 as a successor to the UK Neuroinformatics Network, it organises a set of activities to strengthen and develop UK neuroinformatics.
The Node acts as the UK hub of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF). This is an international body, currently subscribed to by 18 member countries. It has a programme of activities dealing with neuroinformatics issues that require coordination at an international level, such as: how to share data or models, store data long term, interlink current brain atlases, organise the best training for neuroinformatics.
We are now starting to put together a network proposal that brings together the different neuro- communities within the UK: the aim is to re-envisage the UK Node in such a way as to make it an agent for effective communication between these communities. All these communities have much to gain from better understanding the work of the other communities.
The Node is a forum for the UK neuroinformatics community. The Node provides a channel for discussion, a means for developing neuroinformatics, and for training in neuroinformatics, and a voice to represent the community in discussions with other scientific areas, commercial organisations, funding/governmental and international agencies.
The Node aims are:
The UK Node has a mailing list for all its members. We use this to keep our members informed of our events and current neuroinformatics news.
If you wish to join it, please click here. Any member can post to the list.
The UK Node previously sent out newsletters - please click here to view previous newsletters.
A new funding proposal (as an MRC Partnership Grant) was submitted at the end of July 2015 - see news item above.
