Startschuss für großes Forschungsprojekt "APIC"
Hope for Schizophrenia Patients
Around 800,000 people in Germany suffer from schizophrenia. Despite this, the mental illness is not as well researched as depression or dementia. A new, large-scale research project is set to change this. On 12 May 2015 at the specialized clinic for psychiatry and psychotherapy "LVR-Klinik" in Düren, Parliamentary State Secretary Thomas Rachel together with representatives of the brain research alliance JARA-BRAIN officially launched the research project "APIC – Antipsychotic-induced structural and functional changes in the brain".

Modelling the Human Brain

To understand the human brain using simulation – that’s the vision of the Human Brain Project (HBP). In order to make it a reality, researchers from 23 countries are working together to build a unique infrastructure that will allow them to establish and further develop a brain research and information technology network. Jülich scientists will contribute their expertise primarily in the areas of structure and function of the brain, as well as supercomputing and simulation. more: Modelling the Human Brain …

The Human Brain Project

Scientists involved in the Human Brain Project aim to gain a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will not only help to understand what makes us human, but also lay the foundation for new therapies to treat brain-related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. Four videos highlight various aspects of research undertaken at Jülich within the European Human Brain Project.
