Japanese research organizations contribute to Human Brain Project
Date:1/29/2013

el and stimulate the development of a new generation of brain-based computer and information technologies. Participating RIKEN faculty include Keiji Tanaka, Naotaka Fujii and Justin Gardner.

Dr. Naotaka Fujii's team will contribute to the Language group by studying the neural network mechanisms of primate learning of proto-language via nested sequential stimuli. Drs Keiji Tanaka and Justin Gardner will participate in the group studying the mechanisms of information integration in the brain. The process by which semantic knowledge of the world is developed based on visual object representations and how prior knowledge of the world influences visual perception.

Charles Yokoyama, Coordinator of the RIKEN Brain Science Institute-Human Brain Project collaboration, said: "The participation of RIKEN in the Human Brain Project marks a new era in international collaboration to study the brain; such a large-scale, coordinated effort is needed to produce consistent benefits for society."

OIST's contribution is led by Prof. Erik De Schutter, whose team participates in the development of the Brain Simulation Platform, a major software infrastructure effort. Specifically, the team at OIST will contribute its experience in programming software for the spatial simulation of the interaction between electrophysiological events and biochemical reactions in neurons.

"We are delighted that OIST will participate in this major international initiative," said De Schutter. "Our major challenge is how to integrate fine scale of modeling at the molecular level with large-scale modeling of whole brain regions."

The project will begin work in the closing months of 2013 and will be coordinated at the Ecole Polytechnique Fdrale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, by neuroscientist Henry Markram with co-directors Karlheinz Meier of Heidelberg University, Germany, and Richard Frackowiak of Clinique Hospitalire Universitaire Vaudoise (CHUV) and the Unive
