Cuba, China and Canada tighten relations for the study of the center of the nervous system, the newspaper Granma reports today.
The three countries agreed to promote research related to the early detection and management of pathological aging of the brain and to establish an academic exchange program that facilitates the achievement of that goal, the coordinator of the Cuban Brain Mapping Project Pedro Valdés stated.
The three nations agreed to these actions as part of a project recognized during the First Meeting of Human and Neuroinformatics Brain Mapping, recently held at the Cuban Center for Neuroscience, located in this capital.
To fulfill this, each nation undertook to provide certain funding to support the execution of joint investigations planned over the next three years.
The project will be funded by the Quebec Research Fund, the Chinese National Foundation of Science and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Cuba, through the Fund for Science and Technological Innovation.
In the context of the meeting, the website was launched in Spanish, English, French and Chinese for the purpose of reporting on the progress of the studies. / PL
