This is what real research in IT looks like. The researchers will bring in all the results from the biological and physiological literature on neural function. They will integrate these findings into a massive simulation of the human brain. This will we hope provide the most detailed and accurate pucture of the brain possible. This will then be used to attack brain diseases as well as develop new types of neural network computers. Of course, we will need much better supercomputers than we have today, so new computers - 'neuromorphic' computers - will be developed as part of the project. More.
