Digital Brain Research - 2nd edition of the living paper published!


Researchers across Europe and worldwide are invited to comment on a recently published position paper on the vision for the coming decade of digital brain research.

“The coming decade of digital brain research – A vision for neuroscience at the intersection of technology and computing” has been open for comment since March 2022 on the open access platform Zenodo. The living paper has now been updated with a first round of community input and published in its second edition on June 10.

 

 

The position paper outlines a vision for neuroscience at the intersection of technology and computing. It stresses how a systematic approach will be essential in meeting the pressing medical and technological challenges of the coming decade.

The paper is being developed in a participatory process that has been initiated by the Science and Infrastructure Board (SIB) of the Human Brain Project (HBP) and is open to the entire research community. Comments will be continuously reviewed and integrated, and updates of the manuscript will be published every few months.

The common position paper is being drafted with the aims of developing a concept for the coming decade of digital brain research and identifying points of convergence and common goals. The authors are convinced that discussions around the theme of digital brain research will help drive progress in the broader field of neuroscience.

The new science of the brain described in the paper integrates high-quality basic research, systematic data integration across multiple scales, a new culture of large-scale collaboration, and translation into applications.
