*Call For Papers:Journal : Cognitive ComputationSpecial Issue : Brain
Simulation and Spiking Neural Networks*

*Scope and Motivation*

During the past 10 years, many experiments have been implemented with the
aim of improving our understanding on the brain’s structure and function.
Alongside, simulation neuroscience has become an important strategy to
investigate how the brain works. The Human Connectome Project in the US
started in 2009 and aimed to provide a big human brain mapping dataset on
which many brain models have already been tested. In the Human Brain
Project in the EU, a large-scale virtual rodent brain simulation is being
built with the purpose of revealing various brain activities. In Japan,
whole human-scale brain simulations on the Fugaku supercomputer are being
established to investigate how neural networks develop their learning

On the other hand, the foundation of cognitive computing and control
mechanism can be revealed from the simulations of brain circuits and the
neural dynamics. Moreover, these are also critical to improve current
artificial intelligent systems and for building brain intelligence level

In this special issue, we invite researchers to present their
state-of-the-art approaches, introduce recent advances and therefore show
the potential of brain-simulation-related technologies.
