Tel Aviv University part of team launching global Human Brain Project
Date:11/13/2013

Between October 6 and 11, 2013, Tel Aviv University researchers participated in the kickoff in Switzerland of the Human Brain Project, a decade-long global initiative to leverage human intelligence and computing power to better understand the human brain. They joined neuroscientists, doctors, computer scientists, roboticists, and other scientists and professionals from more than 80 research institutions in Europe and around the world at the cole polytechnique fdrale de Lausanne (EPFL) to refine the project's aims and celebrate its start. A major goal of the project is to create a simulation of the brain using supercomputers. The European Union is providing an estimated budget of 1.2 billion euros for the effort, one of two large scientific research initiatives the EU deemed to have visionary and socially beneficial effects.

The researchers Dr. Mira Marcus-Kalish, TAU's Director of International Research Affairs, and Prof. Yoav Binjamini of TAU's Department of Statistics, Sagol School of Neuroscience, and Edmond J. Safra Center for Bioinformatics are part of a team contributing to the project on behalf of TAU.

"Many of the world's most accomplished researchers came together to launch this visionary project," says Dr. Marcus-Kalish, a principal investigator for the project and leader of the TAU group. "Our focus is to use TAU's unique expertise and all available knowhow to bring the benefits of the technological advances to the citizens who are supporting us."

TAU brings big ideas to life

The Human Brain Project is dedicated to advancing neuroscience, medicine, and computing technology. Participating researchers hope to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of brain function, new ways to detect and treat brain disease, and devise more powerful electronics.

The project, headed by Israeli neurologist Prof. Henry Markram of the EPFL, is divided into six research platforms and 13 sub-projects dedicated to
