Researchers at the University of Waterloo have built the largest human brain simulator ever. University of Waterloo professor Chris Eliasmith, the Canada Research Chair in Theoretical Neuroscience, and his colleagues are credited with the achievement.
Mr. Eliasmith and his team say that their brain model, called Spaun, can see, remember, think and write with a mechanical arm. Although Spaun and its environment are housed in a computer (a simulated world with simulated physics), the brain model still utilizes the same processes that your brain uses to pick up a cup of coffee.
