Human Brain Project launches ‘Google Earth’ of the brain
Published in Brain/Neurology, Tech News.
Scientists have developed an atlas of the brain which has the potential to improve research, treatment and surgery for conditions including epilepsy and cancer.
As part of the new EBRAINS digital infrastructure of the European Human Brain Project, a team of scientists has developed a microstructure atlas of the brain. The atlas is said to serve as an interface between neuroscience, computing and technology, linking different information about the brain in a spatially precise way.
The European Commission recently approved 150 million Euros for The Human Brain Project until the end of 2023, when the 10-year project is due to end.
