Henry Markram zegt dat de mysteries van de hersenen kunnen worden opgehelderd - binnenkort. Geestesziekte, geheugen, perceptie: zij worden voortgebracht door neuronen en elektrische signalen, en hij is van plan ze te vinden met een supercomputer die een model maakt van de synapsen in de hersenen.

Henry Markram is director of Blue Brain, a supercomputing project that can model components of the mammalian brain to precise cellular detail — and simulate their activity in 3D. Soon he'll simulate a whole rat brain in real time. Full bio
