Simulation Laboratory Neuroscience -
Bernstein Facility Simulation and Database Technology

The Simulation Laboratory (SimLab) Neuroscience combines experts from a range of scientific disciplines (neuroscience, neuroinformatics, physics, mathematics, and computer science) to support the Computational Neuroscience community in exploiting High-Performance Computing (HPC) for their research.

On the basis of its own research and development, the SimLab Neuroscience provides advanced support in the fields of data analysis, modeling, simulation, HPC methods and visualization. Current activities include

  • Porting and optimizing neuroscientific codes for supercomputers
  • Maintaining installations of widely used simulation and data processing tools
  • Building models and databases of large-scale brain circuits
  • Developing simulations, analysis and database methods for neuroscience
  • Developing and organizing workshops, tutorials and courses

The SimLab Neuroscience is funded by the Helmholtz Association as part of the Helmholtz Portfolio Theme "Supercomputing and Modelling for the Human Brain", and the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA). As the "Bernstein Facility Simulation and Database Technology", the SimLab provides its expertise in simulation and database technologies to the national Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience.
