Blue Brain Portal

Rat Somatosensory Cortex

Blue Brain’s NMC portal allows researchers to access the experimental data used in the reconstruction process, download cellular and synaptic models, and analyze the predicted properties of the microcircuit: six layers, ~31,000 neurons, 55 morphological types, 11 electrical types, 207 morpho-electrical types, anatomy and physiology of ~40 million intrinsic synapses and 1941 unique synaptic connection types between neurons of specific morphological types.  It also provides data supporting comparison of the anatomy and physiology of the reconstructed microcircuit against results in the literature.
