How methods developed for brain research can predict COVID spread ?
Researchers of the Human Brain Project have applied methods and technologies that have originally been developed for the study of complex brain dynamics to study the spread of COVID-19.Find out about the progress of this researchRead the article
New method for measuring brain activity could help multiple sclerosis patients
A new methodology has been developed by researchers of the Humain brain project to calculate the signal propagation delay in the brain of multiple sclerosis patients.Read the article
Sensory stimuli have to catch the right wave of activity at the right time to emerge into consciousness
Consciousness remains a puzzling and tricky subject, if only for the reason that it is hard to define it in the first place.Read the article
Human Brain Project researchers identify new marker of ALS outcome
A study by (HBP) researchers identifies a new marker for predicting the clinical outcome of patients of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) through magnetoencephalography.The study, published in Neurology, has been led by the Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes in Marseille, in collaboration with Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Parthenope University of Naples and Institute of Diagnosis and Care Hermitage Capodimonte in Naples, and the Monash University in Melbourne.Read the article
How HBP is changing the way we treat epilepsy
A third of epilepsy patients are resistant to drugs, and surgical removal of the area of the brain where seizures emerge is often the only option.
However, the targeting of the epileptogenic tissue must be extremely precise, and current success rates still average at 60%.
Ongoing Human Brain Project research is dedicated to improving the surgery success rate for epileptic patients, by using extremely detailed brain simulation, patient-specific models, and predictive software tools.
A modern synthesis for brain modelling
Virtual brains and detailed microcircuit models are changing neuroscience; yet, the elusive multiscale model of the human brain still escapes us. A new approach that goes beyond the standard top-down versus bottom-up dichotomy is not only possible, but necessary, argue Egidio D’Angelo and Viktor Jirsa. In a recent review article published in Trends in Neuroscience, the HBP researchers are proposing to build an array of plug-and-play tools to bring together worlds of neuroscience previously separated.Read the article
