Grid-enabled Modelling Tools and Databases for neuroinformatics



This consortium involves 5 PIs from 4 Institutions; it aims to develop methodologies that improve the ability of neuroscientists to model experimental processes in order to understand how the nervous system processes information in normal and diseased states. They have developed an Axiope databasing software framework based on NeuroML and Java interfaces that is being adopted by the research community, is of interest to industry and will be interfaced with core grid data. The team has national/international links, interfaces with industry, and contributes to an EU network; it has organised a summer school and workshop, and is training students
