A step toward simulating a worm brain in a computer
December 31, 2013
The OpenWorm Project — an open-source project dedicated to creating a virtual C. elegans nematode in a computer by reverse-engineering its biology— has now developed software that replicates the worm’s muscle movement.
The ultimate scientific goal of OpenWorm: understanding how the worm brain works via a full digital simulation.
This is a video of a prototype of the C. elegans swimming-locomotion simulation.
