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 highlighted 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 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.

Showcase 5 (WP3): Dextrous manipulation - how the brain coordinates hand movements
Simulation of in-hand object manipulation performed by a robotic hand.
This research made use of AngoraPy, an open source modeling library, which was developed as part of the Human Brain Project at CCN Maastricht.
