Oh, and incidentally this:

Still looks more primitive than the openworm body model and the brain is randomly generated, but worth watching. Doesn't seem to have a paper yet.

Some other papers from the project are fun, like "Spiking network simulation code for petascale computers":

   "Employing the entire K computer with all 8 cores of each processor, the network filling the effectively available memory of 1.07 PB of RAM has 1.86 · 10^9 neurons and 11.1 · 10^12 synapses, each represented with a double precision synaptic weight and STDP dynamics. This is the largest simulation to date in terms of connectivity. It took 793.42 s to build the network and 2481.66 s to simulate 1 s of biological time. The new technology can exploit the full size of JUQUEEN to simulate a network of 1.08 · 10^9 neurons with 6.5 · 10^12 synapses, a network in the range of a cat's brain."
