The Virtual Brain (TVB) is a neuroinformatics platform for full brain network simulations using biologically realistic connectivity. It enables the model-based inference of neurophysiological mechanisms across different brain scales that underlie the generation of macroscopic neuroimaging signals including functional MRI (fMRI), EEG and MEG.

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.

To improve and extend the Virtual Brain simulation platform and surrounding tools. Current projects include: reusable visualization tools for Jupyter, benchmark and optimize TVB areas, and computational modelling of FNIRS and EEG with The Virtual Brain and Kernel Flow.
