To illustrate how good, cutting-edge scientific research can be done using the tools and services offered by its EBRAINS digital brain research infrastructure, the HBP is highlighting selected multi-disciplinary “showcase” workflows, via a sequence of demonstrations showing the HBP’s ability to build brain-like in-silico entities mimicking brain function.

Showcase 1 (WP1): Degeneracy in neuroscience - when is Big Data big enough?

Advanced prototype software integrating heterogeneous region models.

Coming soon

Showcase 2 (WP1): Improving epilepsy surgery with the Virtual BigBrain

Simulation of patient-specific epileptic brain showing characteristic seizures.

Showcase 4 (WP2): Object Perception and Memory

Simulation of object and scene recognition, illustrating how the brain may achieve image and scene recognition, through the process of learning to construct internal models (latent representations) of objects and the environment.
