Mathematical Models Provide Explanations

The human brain is a gigantic control centre. Mathematical models help to simulate the highly complex flows of information both within and between neurons using supercomputers. Scientists from Computational and Systems Neuroscience (INM-6) at the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine at Forschungszentrum Jülich are developing, among other things, simplified models of the neurons in the brain, which depict examples of the vast number of neural connections. In order to simulate larger neuronal circuits on a computer, Jülich scientists, together with other researchers, are developing the Neural Simulation Technology (NEST) software.
