HBP Brain Simulation Platform

The Blue Brain Project is a key contributor to the Human Brain Project Brain Simulation Platform since its inception. Its purpose is to provide an internet-accessible collaborative  designed for reconstruction and simulation of brain models. The Platform comprises a suite of software tools and workflows for collaborative brain research to allow researchers to reconstruct and simulate detailed multi-level models of the brain, displaying emergent structures and behaviours. Models can be simulated and reconstructed at different levels of description, from abstract to highly detailed molecular and cellular models. Researchers can choose the level of detail they need according to the scientific questions in mind. The tools provided by the Brain Simulation Platform allow researchers to perform in silico experiments to validate models, and to perform investigations that are not possible in the laboratory. Many tools developed by the Blue Brain Project are made available through this platform and future tools are collaboratively developed in that context to be available on the platform.
