  • Modeling the Brain Neurons are pretty complicated cells. They display an endless variety of shapes that sprout highly variable numbers of axons and dendrites; they sport time- and voltage-dependent ion channels along with an impressive array of neurotransmitter receptors; and they connect intimately with near neighbors as well as former neighbors who have since moved away. Simulating a sizeable chunk of brain tissue has recently become achievable, thanks to advances in computer hardware and… CONTINUE READING
