This page is intended to create model of biological human brain based on open research results across the world. Related findings are structured by other research themes.


  • Biological Model contains Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) and human Target Sensors and Target Effectors, connected together and systematically described in machine-readable format
  • Model data are divided into Engine Data (mind.xml, target.xml), Internal Model Data (hmind, muscles, nerves, global.xml) and External Model Data (circuits)
    • Engine Data are divided into
      • Engine Core Data (mind.xml, mind.core.xml) - most probably universal items, independent of biological nature or phenotype
      • Engine Lifecycle Data (mind.lifecycle.xml) - items supporting life functions of biological organism
      • Engine Specific Data (mind.specific.xml, mind.integration.xml) - nervous system items responsible for handling specific human organs
      • Engine Target Data (target.xml) - final sets of human sensors and effectors
    • Internal Model Data provide human-readable descriptions and additional details
      • Global Circuits are independent overlapping groups of regions (global.xml) which shed light on specific modality of mind function across many Mind Areas
    • External Model Data provide thirdparty models, partial and sometimes contradicting, with their own visualization and schema linked with aHuman items identification
  • Detailed data are grouped using two distinct structures - Brain Centers and Mind Areas
    • Brain Centers are well-known anatomical groups existing as major solid structures or sets of nuclei or cortices, located on specific anatomical area
    • Mind Areas are aHuman functional structures grouping items implementing major mind functions
      • Every Mind Area is a set of non-overlapping Local Circuits
        • Local Circuit contains specific mind regions, circuits internal inter-region connections and circuit outbound connections, which establish brain area subfunction or the same function but handling specific aspect of human organism

Mind Areas

Approach of defining areas:

  • make areas functionally named and identified
  • do not create thalamus area to avoid mixing unrelated paths, assign thalamus nuclei to other areas
  • do not create limbic area to avoid mixing unrelated functions, assign limbic components to other areas
  • take into account all subcortical nuclei and ganglia
  • all areas mapped by Brodmann placed in cortical category
  • consider only single left hemisphere
  • consider area as set of groups of regions and links which serve similar function, with area corresponging to providing this function in several circuits (groups)
