A Visual Guide to the Brain

Posted on 23. June 2017

AI based Machine Learning and Neuroscience increasingly joins forces in the quest to understand the functioning of the human brain. The EC funded Human Brain Project (HBP) is one of the catalysts to advance research in that direction.

The purpose of the Visual Guide is to provide an easy path to understand how the human brain is structured and how it performs its various tasks as brain cells work together to interpret sensory information and to form thoughts and plans.

In the brain, millions of neurons are constantly activating, or firing, in complicated sequences. Neuroscientists are just beginning to decipher this neural code and to link firing patterns to sensations, actions, and feats of cognition.
