Neuroscientists Successfully Built 1st Digital Reconstruction Brain Tissue In Rat

The neuroscientists claim to have successfully built a digital reconstruction of a section of a rat’s brain in computer and eventually seek to create the same for human brain. Human Brain Project is a 10-year European research program investing more than $1 billion. The digital recreation of rat’s brain is a breakthrough for them, but it is still far from the goal. Earlier great findings of Blue Brain Project include the insight into sleep, memory and neurological disorders. In the new breakthrough the scientists created a stimulation of even less than a cubic millimeter of rat’s brain, one-third of cubic millimeter. “The algorithm begins by positioning realistic 3D models of neurons in a virtual volume, respecting the measured distribution of different neuron types at different depths. It then detects all…
