Brain Regions

A goal of the Blue Brain is to make available to Neuroscientists and the wider community, brain regions as our work progresses. As part of the community modeling work with the Human Brain Project consortium, we have released a first version of the dense reconstruction of the full rat hippocampus CA1 to the HBP Brain Simulation Platform. As other brain region models become publicly available, Blue Brain will add them in this section.

The dense reconstruction of the full rat hippocampus CA1 is built using a bottom-up data-driven workflow, along the same lines followed to implement a cortical column (Markram et al., 2015). The network is composed by 42 morphologically and biophysically accurate neurons (24 excitatory and 18 inhibitory) divided into 13 morphological types and 17 morpho-electrical types, 156 potential pathways, and 7 intrinsic synapse types. The reconstruction can be found on the Human Brain Project Brain Simulation Platform.
