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 …
