Collaborative data underpins advancing knowledge about the brain. (HBP SGA2)

The HBP’s data ‘ecosystem’ comprises software solutions for information collection, organisation, analysis and sharing, enabling models and simulations to be built. These depend on the brain’s structure and functions being mapped, from molecular to the whole brain level. The three primary goals of the HBP are: to better understand how the different elements of the human brain’s organisation fit and work together (basic science), to translate this to better diagnoses and treatments of brain disease (applied science for health), and also to use this understanding to develop new brain-inspired technologies (technology).
