The Human Brain Project (HBP) is working to develop a collaboration infrastructure, which would among other tools include network and cellular simulators, in-silico experimentation facilities and the opportunity to execute the combination of simulator model and in-silico experiment on a supercomputer or computer cluster. During the project, the tools and the collaboration infrastructure developed by the HBP researchers will be made accessible for the entire neuroscience community. In collaboration, HBP researchers and external neuroscientists will explore the challenges, opportunities and implications of the HBP collaboration infrastructure, and formulate hypotheses, focusing on testing of cognitive tasks like spatial navigation and visual action recognition, that could be tested when the facilities has been developed.

Participation is free of charge. Please register at: ch@tekno.dk (first come, first served).
