Open Source Brain is an online resource for sharing and collaboratively developing computational models of neural systems. Learn more at:

How we work

This Working Group is sponsored by the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program, a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development by pairing them to work with an open source organization on a programming project during their break from school. Membership to this working group is not limited to participants in the GSoC program. All interested parties are encouraged to participate.
