  • Scientists are using the EBRAINS research infrastructure to simulate a robotic hand which can perform in-hand object manipulation. Their work makes use of a unique combination of EBRAINS services, including the high-performance computing infrastructure, the multilevel human brain atlas, and the neurorobotics platform.

  • A panel at the FENS forum discussed the challenges associated with sharing and reusing brain data - and how the EBRAINS research infrastructure seeks to address these challenges.

  • Attendees at the FENS Forum 2022 had the chance to learn how EBRAINS research infrastructure is supporting the future of brain science in Europe during a dedicated networking event this Monday, 11 July.

  • What is EBRAINS good for? During the FENS satellite event on Friday 8 June, in Paris, France, researchers from the Human Brain Project shared their stories about the collaborative digital infrastructure. EBRAINS offers detailed brain atlases, both for humans and animals, tools, workflows and demos, models and simulations, accessible to all users.

  • The Human Brain Project and EBRAINS are present at the FENS 2022, Europe’s largest international neuroscience conference, which is taking place this week in Paris, France.

    A Belgian consortium for EBRAINS

    1 July 2022

    On 14th June, EBRAINS AISBL CEO, Paweł Świeboda, met with the representatives of nine Belgian universities to celebrate the creation of a nation-wide consortium in view of the establishment of an EBRAINS Belgian node. Today, the creation of the Belgian consortium materialises with the full membership of University Hasselt in EBRAINS AISBL. The associate memberships of the 8 remaining universities are expected to be announced in the next couple of months.

  • EBRAINS is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Viktor Jirsa as Chief Science Officer as of 28 June 2022.

  • 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.
