Blue Brain Project

Inside our head nestles a forest of millions of neurons which weave together to make our thoughts. Man has long wanted to discover the secrets of the brain, and has done so with varying degrees of success.

Recently advancements in this area of science have been limited by the power of computers. But at Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the Blue Brain Project aims to change this by simulating the structures and functions of the brain.

The Blue Brain project is the first comprehensive attempt to reverse-engineer the mammalian brain, in order to understand brain function and dysfunction through detailed simulations.
