Neurona@Home Project (Open Project)
Neurona@Home is a BOINC-based project with the main aim of simulating the behavior of a large assembly of cellular automata neurons connected in a complex network. The project takes hundreds of internet-connected computers from all over the world and uses them to simulate a 1,000,000 neuron bee brain. Two types of neurons: inhibitory and exitatory, each neuron can be one of three states: resting, activated, refactory. Model assigns each neuron a state and chooses interconnection values.
Uses the BOINC distributed computing platform. The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open source middleware system for volunteer and grid computing.
Lead researcher is Dr. Javier Villanueva at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.

Project Description / Краткое описание проекта:
The Human Brain Project (USA) is a broad-based initiative which supports research and development of advanced technologies, and infrastructure support, through cooperative efforts among neuroscientists and information scientists (computer scientists, engineers, physicists, and mathematicians).
The goal is to produce new digital capabilities providing a World Wide Web (WWW) based information management system in the form of interoperable databases, and associated data management tools.
Tools would include, and are not limited to, graphical interfaces, querying and mining approaches, information retrieval, data analysis, visualization and manipulation, integrating tools for data analysis, biological modeling and simulation, and tools for electronic collaboration.
The Neuroscience database will be interoperable with other databases, such as genomic and protein databases, to create the capability to analyze functional interactions in greater depth.
Tools will also need to be created to manage, integrate and share this resource via the WWW providing the capability for channels of communication and collaboration between geographically distinct sites.
These databases and tools will be used by neuroscientists, behavioral scientists, clinicians and educators, in their respective fields, to understand brain structure, function, and development across the many levels and areas of data collection and analysis.
On April 2, 1993, the Human Brain Project was announced and published in the NIH Guide, grant applications for Phase I feasibility studies were solicited.
Four new program announcements were issued on December 6, 2002.
The human brain project (neuroinformatics):
Phase I - feasibity;
Phase I & II - Refinements, maintenance and integration;
Institutional mentored research scientist development award for neuroinformatics;
Innovative exploratory studies and technology development in neuroinformatics research;
Research core centers for advanced neuroinformatics research.
Brain Science explores the essence of brain, research on the principle and model of natural intelligence in molecular, cell and behavior level.
Understanding brain function requires the integration of information from the level of the gene to the level of behavior. At each of these many and diverse levels there has been an explosion of information, with a concomitant specialization of scientists. The price of this progress and specialization is that it is becoming virtually impossible for any individual researcher to maintain an integrated view of the brain and to relate his or her narrow findings to this whole cloth. Although the amount of information to be integrated far exceeds human limitations, solutions to this problem are available from the advanced technologies of computer and information sciences.
