Petra Ritter serves as the director of the Section for Brain Simulation. This group has been at the forefront of network-based brain simulation, computational neuroscience and its clinical application for more than 10 years. In collaboration with other international research centers, the team led by Professor Ritter has developed a way to simulate a brain of an individual person or patient with reduced complexity but feasible, sufficiently accurate, scalable and already used in practical clinical applications. Professor Ritter’s group employs state-of-the art software engineering methods for developing tools for data processing, analysis and visualization.
