Understanding the human brain

The Human Brain Project (HBP) aims at understanding the human brain

  • by building brain models to gain profound insights into what makes us human,
  • to develop new treatments for brain diseases, and
  • to design revolutionary new computing technologies.

The project is built around the research areas of future neuroscience, future medicine and future ICT.  Aalto University is currently HBP’s only Finnish partner, with professors Riitta Hari and Lauri Parkkonen taking care of the 'Social brain' task of the project.
