Paper Roundup – New Insights through Large-Scale Collaborative Neuroscience


HBP_Primary_RGB_BlackText (1).png

Recent papers showcase the impact of a new collaborative, large-scale approach taking hold in global neuroscience. Contributions range from understanding neuronal cell types and firing behavior, the genetics of the human cerebral cortex, to variability in neuroimaging results.

HBP researchers are engaged in these scientifically unique efforts. To actively shape the future landscape of open team science they are building EBRAINS, a digital research infrastructure that is open to neuroscientists worldwide. Together with global partners they have also established the International Brain Initiative, a new forum for coordination of neuroscience research across disciplines and national borders.
