The Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain diseases and build revolutionary new computing technologies. Modern computing technology has brought these goals within sight.

 

The European Commission has announced, the Human Brain Project, a $1.5-billion Supercomputer to simulate the Human Brain. 

 

The over a period of ten years Human Brain Project, will seek to understand and map the brain structure and function, and aim to translate it into a supercomputer simulation.

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing
