APL researchers, Hopkins undergrads team up for brain mapping project

Through a summer partnership with researchers at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, 23 Johns Hopkins undergrads helped map the human brain to nanoscale resolution for a pilot program aimed at reverse-engineering the brain to improve machine learning.

CIRCUIT—short for Connectomics Institute for Reconstructing Cortex: Understanding Intelligence Together—is a 10-week internship program for students from a variety of disciplines—including biomedical engineering, computer science, and neuroscience—who receive intensive training and mentor support during their research project.
