  • Understanding consciousness is one of the greatest challenges of neuroscience. Is it possible to develop brain-based measures of consciousness? Why does it fade and recover during transitions across brain states? Researchers at the Human Brain Project (HBP) are addressing this challenge by merging new clinical methods and advanced brain modelling on the EBRAINS research infrastructure. Over the past years, they used a novel approach to investigate brain activity in conscious and unconscious states from the micro-level to the whole brain.

  • The eBRAIN-Health project is led by BIH Johanna Quandt Professor of Brain Simulation Prof. Dr. Petra Ritter, who is also Head of the Brain Simulation research group at the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH) and Head of Charité’s Department of Neurology and Experimental Neurology.

  • EBRAINS is pleased to announce that the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) – a leading-edge multidisciplinary research centre based in Barcelona – has joined the EBRAINS AISBL as an associate member.
