The HBP has brought together communities from different disciplines and countries to work together towards common goals. In the new eNeuro article “Linking brain structure, activity and cognitive function through computation”, the HBP researchers outline their scientific approach and illustrate the potential of the EBRAINS infrastructure for neuroscience research.
The human brain is one of the…
