The Human Brain Project: navigating brain networks

The human brain is a truly amazing and awe-inspiring thing, performing feats that even the most sophisticated computers are only just starting to tackle and doing so using a tiny amount of energy. Understanding the brain’s multi-level organisation and behaviours is a challenge so extraordinary that no single research project could claim to provide the full picture. Collaboration on a vast scale is needed.

PRACE: Europe’s supercomputing infrastructure relies on GÉANT

How does a researcher test out treatments on the human heart—without putting patients at risk? How does a scientist predict if certain cloud formations will become severe weather—so she can warn disaster teams? How does a car designer test out new materials in a collision—without building a new car every time?
The only way to do these things is via computer simulation and modelling.
However, 3D modelling and accurate simulations require massive processing power.
