Kartläggningen av hjärnans struktur accelererar

september 18, 2012

The Blue Brain Project har tagit ett rejält kliv framåt.

Resultat: (BBP) has identified key principles that determine synapse-scale connectivity.

Tillvägagångssätt: Each neuron in the circuit was reconstructed into a 3D model on a powerful Blue Gene supercomputer.

En av slutsatserna var: This means that neurons grow as independently of each other as physically possible and mostly form synapses at the locations where they randomly bump into each other.

Målet:  to reconstruct the brains of different species — including the human brain — in silico.
