Johns Hopkins APL and University Students Join Forces to Map the Brain
- Created: Tuesday, 05 December 2017 10:12
Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) partnered with Johns Hopkins University students this summer on a pilot program called CIRCUIT (Connectomics Institute for Reconstructing Cortex: Understanding Intelligence Together). The ten-week summer internship program combined a sponsored research opportunity to map the brain to nanoscale resolution, intensive training, and mentor support. CIRCUIT undergraduate students from a variety of academic backgrounds collaborated to help proofread brain maps that were generated through the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS) program.
