The Virtual Brain is a simulation platform that can be run on any laptop but is also scalable to HPC clusters. It has over 10,000 installations worldwide. The Virtual Brain is an open-source platform that brings together computational, cognitive and clinical neuroscientists.

Dr Randy McIntosh is a Senior Scientist at the Rotman Research Institute and a Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto. He helped secured the initial investment to bring together computational, cognitive and clinical neuroscientists to establish The Virtual Brain. Dr McIntosh’s work links cognitive and theoretical neuroscience by emphasizing how network operations give rise to human mental processes.

The lecture is part of the regular Feindel Lecture Series offered by the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC), led by Dr Julien Doyon at The Neuro.

Dr Randy McIntosh’s visit is supported by Dr Alan Evans laboratory, McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (MCIN) at The Neuro and the Ludmer Centre.
