Mouse brain simulated on computer

The first steps have been taken toward digitized human minds: a simulation of neurons roughly as complex as a mouse brain has been run on a computer. It was only run briefly, and at a speed 10x slower than real time, but it's a start. Progress in computing speed will soon allow realtime simulations, or faster.

The next step is finding a way to map an existing brain, and duplicating it in a simulation.
