BBC Click Online on ‘Blue Brain’ simulation project

neurons_getty_203.jpgBBC Technology TV show Click Online recently visited the team behind the (somewhat unlikely) claim that they are intending to ‘simulate the whole brain‘ with a supercomputer.

Despite the hype surrounding the launch, the project should be genuinely useful in producing simulations that will allow the function of individual brain cells and theories about more complex neural networks to be modelled and tested.

BBC Click Online went to the project’s base in Lausanne in Switzerland, and discussed the potential for advancing the field of neuroscience with the team. Video is available as a realvideo stream from the link below.
