    Description: Neurona@Home is a BOINC-based project with the main aim of simulating the behavior of a large assembly of cellular automata neurons connected in a complex network.


    Main Facts

    • A human brain contains more than 10.000 million neurons with an average of 10.000 synaptic connections projecting from each neuron to other neurons.
    • Even the mini-brains of some insects are indeed very complex: Honeybee brains contain around 960.000 neurons which give them astounding memory and behavioral repertoire for their size.
    • It is known that the synchronization of the firing of large assemblies of neurons is related to odour discrimination in insects.
    • In Humans synchronous oscillations are also present but they are usually related to higher-order functions such as attention, memory and conscious awareness.
    • The origin and even the role of these oscillations are still poorly understood.
    Institution: University of Madrid, Spain.
