Reverse Engineering The Brain, Online

3,003 views

Published on

Neuroscience is undergoing a revolution in information technology. New online tools bridging neuroscience and computer science have the potential to bring scientists, students, educators, and even the public together to reverse-engineer the structure and function of the brain. This talk will provide a brief overview of this trend and what can be expected coming down the road. http://slars0n.com
