Blue Brain Portal

Welcome to the Blue Brain Portal from the EPFL Blue Brain Project – a knowledge space for simulation neuroscience

Models

Multi-scale models of the rat and mouse brain integrate models of ion channels, single cells, microcircuits, brain regions, and brain systems at different levels of granularity (molecular models, morphologically detailed cellular models, and abstracted point neuron models).

Online Tools

A collection of platforms and atlases from the Blue Brain and our collaborators to assist users with simulation neuroscience.

Online Learning

Take a massive open online courses taught by a multi-disciplinary team of world-renowned scientists in Simulation Neuroscience.  Simulation Neuroscience is an emerging approach to integrate the knowledge dispersed throughout the field of neuroscience.

Software

Blue Brain’s reconstruction and related simulations are made possible by a comprehensive software ecosystem for each step in the reconstruction and simulation process. Blue Brain systematically releases open source software.

Data

Data is of vital importance to the study of the Brain. For neuroscientists in this section, there are ion channel recordings, morphological reconstructions, electrical recordings from neocorticol neurons and molecular properties of neurons. These are available on Blue Brain platforms, the EBRAINS Cellular Level Simulation Platform and the Hippocampus Hub.

Publications

Blue Brain has published over 200 papers and pre-prints.
