JARA Involved in European Megaproject on Human Brain Simulation
A detailed simulation of the entire human brain, from genetics to the molecular level and the interaction of whole cell clusters, performed on a supercomputer of the future: such is the visionary goal of the Human Brain Project (HBP), in which JARA researchers are involved. The ambitious ten-year venture is one of two research projects to be funded by the EU as part of its FET Flagship Initiative. The costs of the Human Brain Project are estimated to be € 1 billion. more
JARA-BRAIN Women Scientists are "Excellent"
In the second phase of the Excellence Initiative, RWTH Aachen University scientific applications from no less than three JARA-BRAIN women scientists were successful in an internal university selection procedure.
New Highlight in Measuring Technology at Jülich
JARA-BRAIN scientists PD Dr. Irene Neuner and Prof. Dr. N. Jon Shah have jointly developed a unique new combination of measuring techniques that enables electrophysiological images of the brain to be taken in a 9.4 tesla magnetic resonance tomograph.
