The Live Papers of the Brain Simulation Platform

Live Papers are interactive documents that refer to recently published scientific articles whose content is related to the work, tools and services publicly available on the BSP.

The Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) hosts workflows and software tools to allow researchers to build, configure and run detailed brain region models at different scales. Current workflows available include the extraction of electrophysiological features from traces, building single cell models of different brain regions, and the possibility to run in silico experiments on large-scale model circuits.

We have now started to add Live Papers to the BSP. These Live Papers are interactive documents that refer to recently published scientific articles whose content is related to the work, tools and services publicly available on the BSP. Interactivity is the unique feature of these Live Papers: specific links on the documents will allow one to download, visualise or simulate data, models and results presented in the articles.

Currently, three Live Papers are available and more are being added as a model is published.

  • Lindroos, R., Dorst, M. C., Du, K., Filipovic, M., Keller, D., Ketzef, M., . . . Hellgren Kotaleski, J. (2018).

  • Migliore, R., Lupascu, C. A., Bologna, L. L., Romani, A., Courcol, J. D., Antonel, S., . . . Migliore, M. (2018).

One can access the Live Papers via the HBP website (https://www.humanbrainproject.eu/en/brain-simulation/live-papers/).  To get the full functionality of a Live Paper, one needs access to the HBP Collaboratory with an HBP Community account.  This is easy to get by emailing bsp-support@humanbrainproject.eu

We hope you find the Live Papers a useful feature. Feel free to provide any feedback or suggestions for improvement to bsp-support@humanbrainproject.eu
