Top trending article in Nature Neuroscience
Ten days after it was published in Nature Neuroscience, the article “Gradients of neurotransmitter receptor expression in the macaque cortex” by a team of scientists from the Research Centre Jülich in collaboration with the University of Bristol has become the top trending article on the Nature Neuroscience website.
The Human Brain Project ends: What has been achieved
On September 30th, the Human Brain Project (HBP) formally completes its 10-year runtime as an EU-funded FET Flagship. The project has pioneered digital neuroscience, a new approach to studying the brain based on multidisciplinary collaborations and high-performance computing. The HBP will continue to have an impact on neuroscience for many years through the EBRAINS research infrastructure and a new way of collaborative work in the field.
Success in international AI-competition
In the category "Machine Learning for Physical and Life Sciences", Eric Upschulte, a member of the Big Data Analytics group at INM-1, placed one of the top spots. He reached the top ten among 443 participants in the "Cell Segmentation Competition". The researcher will now present his results at the conference in New Orleans, USA.
Nataliia Fedorchenko awarded place in prestigious Max Planck School of Cognition
Ukrainian brain researcher Nataliia Fedorchenko has been accepted as an associated PhD candidate at the Max Planck School of Cognition (MPSCog). She will carry out her PhD under the supervision of MPSCog faculty member Katrin Amunts at the Cécile and Oskar Vogt Institute of Brain Research at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf.
Multilevel brain atlases provide tools for better diagnosis
The multilevel Julich Brain Atlas developed by researchers in the Human Brain Project, could help in studying psychiatric and aging disorders by correlating brain networks with their underlying anatomical structure. By mapping microarchitecture with unprecedented levels of detail, the atlas allows for better understanding of brain connectivity and function. Researchers of the HBP have provided an overview of the Julich Brain Atlas published in the journal Biological Psychiatry, focusing on the cytoarchitecture and receptor architecture of the human brain, and how to apply it for research in the field of psychiatric research.
