Why the brain never rests - fascinating paper by collaborators in the HBP http://www.upf.edu/dtic/en/actualitat/0503.html#.UimZd2R81Hw

Dr. Eugene M. Izhikevich visits the BBP on Monday the 8 July to give a talk on 'Spikes'. Most communication in the brain is via spikes. While we understand the spike-generation mechanism of individual neurons, we fail to appreciate the spike-timing code and its role in neural computations. The speaker starts with simple models of neuronal spiking and bursting, describes small neuronal circuits that learn spike-timing code via spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP), and finishes with large-scale brain models.

A major obstacle that hinders the understanding of the brain is the fragmentation of brain research and the data is produces. Modern neuroscience has been enormously productive but unsystematic. Developing and leveraging off ICT technology to integrate knowledge and data is one of the fundamental concepts of the HBP proposed work plan. Read the HBP report 2012 for more details: http://www.humanbrainproject.eu/files/HBP_flagship.pdf
