The next steps for the Blue Brain are three-fold:
Building larger areas of the brain – the neocortex and its connecting brain region, the thalamus and at higher resolution (the molecules inside of each cell). By practicing the method on the mouse brain we can find out how to build the human brain with minimal data.
Furthering Blue Brain’s current research strengths, driving translational research with a focus on applications of neurological disorders, neurotechnologies and machine learning.
Continuing to provide data, models, open source software and online tools to the scientific community through the Blue Brain Portal and as a collaborator on the platforms of the European Human Brain Project. Blue Brain is catalyzing community collaboration on reconstructing and simulating biologically detailed models of the brain.
