Human Brain Project

Pioneering digital neuroscience to better understand the brain, its diseases, and its computational capabilities – that is the vision of the European Human Brain Project.

The human brain is a masterpiece of nature. Even the most complicated assignments are solved by this control centre in no time at all and using extremely little energy. Scientists in the Human Brain Project aim at gaining a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will help not only to understand what makes us human, but also to lay the foundation for new therapies of brain related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. Jülich scientists contribute their expertise primarily in the areas of brain structure and function as well as supercomputing and simulation.
