The Federal University of ABC (UFABC) is one of the new Brazilian federal universities, created by Law 11,145 on 26 July 2005. Therefore, the support of development agencies is indeed essential for the research development in a level of excellence. In this proposal, we present a project to use the FAPESP-RTI of CMCC. This proposal focuses on the acquisition boards for hardware designs, and adequacy of the exhaust chapels laboratory system, soundproof room experimentation in human and animal facilities Electric Sector of Delta Block Experimentation infrastructure. In these spaces research activities will be developed with inter and multidisciplinary character, with two main emphases: i) computational and mathematical modeling of biological systems and ii) research in neuroscience (including animal models and neuropsychology). Obtaining the equipment described in this project and the adequacy of infrastructure will be useful for research approach in topics related to the areas of mathematics, computing and cognition. With support from FAPESP, we expect to realize quality research with an interdisciplinary profile. (AU)
