Thomas Lippert is bringing together experts from his HBP scientific network to obtain precise data on the virus’ spread and drug development as quickly as possible.
Martin Hofmann-Apitius is using some of the technologies that he brought to the Human Brain Project (in particular semantic technologies such as text mining and terminology / ontology construction) to address the COVID-19 challenge.
The HBP Student Representatives & Ambassadors, supported by the HBP Education Programme, invited interested researchers from within as well as outside the HBP to a virtual tea and coffee break featuring talks by young researchers from the HBP.
Interest in research into the effects of psilocybin, a psychedelic drug, has increased significantly in recent years due to its promising therapeutic effects in neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and addiction.
When generating a detailed network model of the brain, nerve fiber crossings pose a major challenge for current neuroimaging techniques. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now found that scattered light can be used to resolve the brain’s substructure like the crossing angles of the nerve fibers with micrometer resolution. For their studies, the researchers combined microscopy measurements and simulations on supercomputers.
Qbeast has been selected as the company with the highest evaluation, for its growth potential, and both technological and social impact.
Neuromorphic chips modelled on the human brain have enormous potential, offering a promising and efficient alternative for artificial intelligence (AI) tasks in particular.
