Mouse Brain Organisation
SP1 generates neuroscientific concepts, knowledge, experimental datasets and tools, which are used to build models for the simulation of the brain.
Human Brain Organisation
SP2 develops neuroscientific concepts, tools, knowledge and datasets to contribute to a better understanding of the human brain.
Systems & Cognitive Neuroscience
SP3 uncovers the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive processes, such as learning, perception, sleep, consciousness, and associated systems phenomena.
SP4 develops theoretical algorithms which play a key role in many areas of neuroscience research, including modelling of biological processes, analysis of brain activity patterns, and input into brain-derived computation.
Brain Simulation Platform
SP6 provides an internet-accessible collaborative Platform, the Brain Simulation Platform, designed for predictive reconstruction and simulation of brain models.
Neuromorphic Computing Platform
SP9's Neuromorphic Computing Platform provides brain-inspired computer architectures and makes them available for applications and experiments in neuroscience and generic computing.
The Neurorobotics Platform allows researchers to give any simulated brain model its own “body” — virtual or even real — and explore how it controls movement, reacts to stimulus and learns in a virtual environment.
Ethics and Society
Through its research and ethics management, Subproject 12 promotes Responsible Research and Innovation practices within the HBP, and helps to shape the direction of the HBP in ethically sound ways that serve the public interest.
