Project 1: Preparing brain models for exascale systems

Project2 : Whole-brain spiking neural network and rodent musculo-skeletal models integration for behavioral experimentation in the neurorobotics platform

Project description

In EXABRAINPREP voucher program, we will develop new efficient implementations of connection wiring and colocalization of synaptic ion channels in NEST3 for avoiding memory bloat and slow down. We will also port the program code of a brain model from NEST2 to NEST3 to fully utilize the feature of NEST3. In RoBoBrain voucher program, we will realize the brain model simulation connected with a rat musculoskeletal model in a virtual environment developed by Neurorobotics platform.
