A key goal of the Human Brain Project is to construct realistic simulations of the human brain – this will require molecular and cellular information and from that we will be able to model and understand biological and medical processes. In addition, we will be able to use that information to design and implement new kinds of computers and robotics.

Prof. Seth Grant, University of Edinburgh,
Co-leader of the Strategic Mouse Brain data subproject

The Human Brain is the most complex system that we know of. We would like to develop some kind of ‘google' brain where we can zoom in and out, see it from different perspectives and understand how brain structure and function is related. The ultimate aim of the Human Brain Project is to understand the human brain. This is only possible when we understand the structural organization of the human brain.

The Human Brain Project will become a major driver of ICT in Europe.

how is that human genome project an example of bio ethics? | Yahoo Answers

Well the human genome project identified all the genes in the human genome, which is the genetic makeup of a person. These genes include those that predispose a person to cancer, debilitating diseases, dwarfism, and other genetic problems which could shorten or lower the quality of life for a person.
By mapping out the entire genome, it is possible that it could be used in an unethical way. Parents could genetically test their children prior to birth for any type of genetic defects. If there was some trait expressed the parents did not want, there is the possibility they would choose…
