TheVirtualBrain, international collaboration and early initiatives
We are starting by modelling general trajectories of brain resilience from youth to old age, reflecting various biological, social and cultural factors. Then, we’ll model ideal trajectories of brain resilience, considering how individuals adapt to change. Finally, we’ll create knowledge mobilization hubs, bringing together scientists, practitioners and communities to develop effective solutions to challenges along these trajectories. Underpinning this work is TheVirtualBrain (TVB) – a free, downloadable brain simulation resource for scientists and clinicians created through a collaboration between Canada, France and Germany.
