Google and Harvard Map a Tiny Bit of Our Ridiculously Complex Brain Connections in Unprecedented Detail

There are more possible connections between neurons in the brain than there are stars in the galaxy, making the ole’ noggin the most complex supercomputer we know of. To map the connections in just one millimeter of cerebral cortex tissue required over a million gigabytes of data, and 225 million images. Now assembled by researchers […]
