The Virtual Brain, a cutting edge computational replica of the human brain, is being built to deliver the first open simulation of the human brain based on individual large-scale connectivity; within the next 5 years, running on comparably tame hardware and right in your browser!
Balancing Complexity and Utility
By employing novel concepts from neuroscience, effectively reducing the complexity of the brain simulation while still keeping it sufficiently realistic..
Transforming Clinicial Therapy for Brain Diseases
To explore to what degree manipulations of brain connectivity can be exploited for clinical purposes in epilepsy and stroke.
The Virtual Brain will be completely customized to an individual patient‘s brain. Our vision is to safely devise, benchmark and test therapies before pharmaceutical or surgical application.
The Virtual Brain is part of a global brain-health research initiative built by 15 distinguished neuroscience teams spanning 7 countries and 10 universities.
