  • The European-led Human Brain Project aims to gather existing knowledge about the brain and reconstruct it, piece by piece, in super-computer-based models and simulations. The 10-year, $1.6 billion U.S. (1.19 billion euro) project is backed by the European Commission and will include 87 partners in 27 countries, according to UCLA. LONI's portion of the funding will be $10.8 million.

    In addition to UCLA, other U.S. institutions involved in the project are Yale University, the University of Tennessee, and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, UCLA said.

    Also involved will be Japan's Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) and RIKEN Brain Science Institute.
