Billion-pound brain development project underway

London, Oct. 8 : The billion-pound neuroscience project entitled 'The Human Brain Project', which will take a decade for its completion and aims to remodel our understanding of the human brain, has begun.

Scientists from 135 institutions, mostly in Europe, will be involved in the HBP that has been co-funded by EU, the BBC reported.

The goal of the project is to develop the technology needed to create a computer simulation of the brain.

Prof Henry Markram, director of the HBP at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, in Switzerland, said that the project is an attempt to build completely new computer science technology that will enable us to collect all the information we have built up about the brain over the years.
