The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM) at Forschungszentrum Jülich, investigates the structure and function of the human brain on different spatial and temporal scales within the research program “Decoding the Human Brain”. The INM focuses on the structure and function of the healthy and diseased human brain, its variability, and its development during a lifetime. It aims to understand the structural and functional changes caused by neurological and psychiatric disorders and thus to improve their early diagnosis and treatment. Scientists from various disciplines have therefore joined forces, employing state-of-the-art imaging techniques such as structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), microanatomy, cell biology, genetics, and the methods used in physics and information science.

The INM-6, Computational and Systems Neuroscience, develops mathematical models of the dynamics and function of neural circuits. These include model-driven analysis of brain activity and structure, and the simulation of biologically realistic models. The subinstitute is also part of the Institute of Advanced Simulation (IAS-6, Theoretical Neuroscience) and hosts the coordination office (BCOS) of the national Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience. The INM-6 is strongly involved in the EU flagship project "Human Brain Project" (HBP, http://www.humanbrainproject.eu/) and leads several work packages in the subproject Theoretical Neuroscience as well as in the platforms Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation and High-Performance Analytics and Computing. Together with its partners, the INM-6 develops leading codes for simulation (http://www.nest-initiative.org/) and data analysis (https://python-elephant.org/) on the brain scale with the resolution of individual nerve cells in an open source approach.
