The York Science Park facility, which spent 175,000, aims to "put the university at the forefront of pioneering studies into the human brain." The 64-processor cluster analyzes data from a MEG scanner and includes Xserve 1U servers, 55 Xserve cluster nodes and three Xserve RAID 3U storage platforms. Initially, it promises to help scientists understand how vision, memory, language, and motor controls work together. It will later be expanded to include research into epilepsy, autism, strokes and dementia. The university is already considering doubling the number of cluster nodes and expanding the storage capacity of the system, according to the report.
