News and Announcements The Human Brain Project to present at Swisstech Open Days Representatives of the Human Brain Project (HBP) will be presenting at the grand opening of the Swiss Tech Convention Center, at EPFL in Lausanne on the weekend of 5-6 April 2014.

The Simulation

The presentation will consist of a global overview of the project, followed by a projection of the 3D HBP movie and a 10-minute Q&A session. Teaching materials. Teaching materials Evolution is essential to our curriculum and to scientific literacy.

Tree of Life Web Project. The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world.

Tree of Life Web Project

On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid. Understanding Evolution. Exploring Life's Origins: A Virtual Exhibit. Ten Recent Advances in Evolution. By Carl Zimmer Posted 10.26.09 NOVA To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species, here's a list—by no means exhaustive—of some of the biggest advances in evolutionary biology over the past decade.

Ten Recent Advances in Evolution

These advances include not just a better understanding of how this or that group of species first evolved, but insights into the evolutionary process itself. In some cases those insights would have given Darwin himself a pleasant jolt of surprise.

Mitosis. Continuamos con el tema de las Animaciones, esa vez con unas de la mejores que he visto sobre Biología Celular , donde se incluyen temas desde la Anatomía de la Célula, Estructura de los Cromosomas, ADN, Ciclo de Krebs, Fotosíntesis, etc. y mis favoritas las de Mitosis y Meiosis. Lo único malo es que cuentan con Copyright a nombre de John Kirk y que solo pueden mostrarse o reproducirse en su sitio Web; por eso solo muestro algunas imágenes; lo bueno es que son muy accesibles y vienen en 6 idiomas.

Scientists discover brain chemical that eases the pain of financial loss

The Human Brain Project. Blue Brain’s success in modeling the rat cortical column has driven the development of the Brain Simulation Facility and has demonstrated the feasibility of the project’s general strategy.

The Human Brain Project

But, this is only a first step. The human brain is an immensely powerful, energy efficient, self-learning, self-repairing computer. If we could understand and mimic the way it works, we could revolutionize information technology, medicine and society. To do so we have to bring together everything we know and everything we can learn about the inner workings of the brain's molecules, cells and circuits. With this goal in mind, the Blue Brain team has recently come together with approximately 87 other European and international partners to propose the Human Brain Project (HBP), which was selected as one of two EU FET Flagships.

The Ductile Helix: "Jumping Genes" May Influence Brain Activity. Mobile DNA molecules that jump from one location in the genome to another may contribute to neurological diseases and could have subtle influences on normal brain function and behavior, according to a study published October 30 in Nature.
