Emulating Neurons

Interesting Mindhacks summary of a piece on brain emulation on a chip in Discovery. We were closely involved in the whole topic of 'Artificial Neural Nets' back in the 90s and used them successfully for certain kinds of analytical models. We knew that these models were vast simplifications of the neural nets that drive out brain, yet were intrigued by the relationship to physical brain models. Pointers also to the Stanford brains in silicon project, which I will examine further. At the right, the complexity of stained neurons in the human hippocampus.
