Sebastian Seung sta lavorando ad un progetto molto ambizioso: mappare un modello del cervello studiando le connessioni tra ciascun neurone. Chiama questo modello il nostro "connettoma", che è tanto personale quanto il nostro genoma— e la sua comprensione potrebbe aprire una nuova strada alla comprensione dei nostri cervelli e delle nostre menti.

Computational neuroscientist
