Web 2.0 technologies, specifically for this project, Wikipedia, are tools of an enormous potential for scientific diffusion. Education foundations that support the platform and the community of collaborators involved in it are united in an effort to make 2016 the Year of Science in Wikipedia. This is therefore the ideal time to, driven by wiki-tools, improve access to quality material on science, such as Neuromathematics. The project proposed here aims to explore and expand the potential of the Wikipedia Initiative of NeuroMat, as well as understand the relevance of the use of these platforms in science dissemination.
