The Markram Interviews Part Three: The Blue Brain Project

Article

In the final part of our exclusive interview series with Blue Brain Project Founder and Director Professor Henry Markram, we discuss the goals that he has strived towards over the last 15 years – simulating the mouse, and eventually human, brain. We discuss the Blue Brain Project’s achievements and setbacks and Markram explains what he feels are the Project’s most surprising findings. Finally, we look towards the future – when will we have simulated the human brain?
