Computational Neuroscience - “Red Neuron” Blue Brain Project, Brain Mind Institute, EPFL (2006-2007)


The focus for this video was on 3D reconstructions and visualisations of the rat brain neocortical column. This snapshot from the Blue Brain Project (BBP) video, shows a section of a rat brain reconstructed as a computer model. The red cell is highlighted to better show the relations of cells through dendritic connections. It is based on the research of Prof. Henry Markram and the BBP team from the Brain Mind Instutute, EPFL.
Technology: Our in-house engine GabrielStudio (written from scratch in C/C++ but now superseded by BioInspire) was used to create the renderings.
