    Our research on neuroprosthetics receives HPC Wire Reader's Choice Award for Best use of AI

    Neurosim lab reserachers at SUNY Downstate and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego received the HPCwire awards for 2017, recognizing the use of its Comet supercomputer in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) research.

  • Biomimetic neuroprosthetics publication featured in UCSD and SDSC news

    By applying a novel computer algorithm to mimic how the brain learns, a team of researchers – with the aid of the Comet supercomputer based at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego and the Center’s Neuroscience Gateway – has identified and replicated neural circuitry that resembles the way an unimpaired brain controls limb movement.

  • Professor Bill Lytton featured in Scientia


    Neurologist and computational neuroscientist Professor Bill Lytton and his colleagues at the Neurosimulation Laboratory of the State University of New York in Brooklyn are using computer simulation to investigate brain function and disease. Their research has far-ranging implications in addressing human illness.
