The main scientific goal at NeuroPSI is to understand the nature and logic of the neural circuits that govern the behavior of animals as they interact with their environment. We use various animal models and combine experimental and theoretical approaches to understand how different types of neural architectures can perform brain tasks.

The NIH Common Fund’s Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) program supports a consortium of international researchers working to accelerate development of therapeutic devices and identification of neural targets for bioelectronic medicine--modulating electrical activity in nerves to help treat diseases and conditions by precisely adjusting organ function.
The Brain Simulation Section headed by Professor Petra Ritter is located at the Charité in Berlin. It is one of the leading centers in the field of multimodal brain imaging and multi-scale computational modelling. The unit is hosted by the Dept. of Neurology at the Charité University Medicine Berlin. Charité is one of the largest University Hospitals in Europe with close to 100 different Departments and Institutes and more than 3,700 researchers. It lays claim to several Nobel Prize winners, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich.
The Ontario Neuroinformatics Consortium (ONiC) is a regional alliance focused on developing and promoting neuroinformatics initiatives for Ontario scientists. The group consists of the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest, the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics at CAMH, BrainsCAN at Western University, and the Ontario Brain Institute. ONiC works in tandem with other national partners in the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform to coordinate national efforts in support of INCF's mandate.
The Allen Institute for Brain Science is a division of the Allen Institute (alleninstitute.org), an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit medical research organization, and is dedicated to accelerating the understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease. Using a big science approach, the Allen Institute generates useful public resources used by researchers and organizations around the globe, drives technological and analytical advances, and discovers fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments, modeling and theory.
