Silicon Brain: 1,000,000 ARM cores - Computerphile
We have two problems with modeling the human brain. One is how a neuron works, and the other is how neurons are connected together. Modeling the impulses in single neuron might be fairly simple, if we knew how they worked. I suppose some people have some idea. How a complete neuron works is another matter entirely. It's a complete cell after all, with all the cellular machinery that implies. Using a living cell to perform the functions of a neuron is comparable to the using the city of Manhattan to support an adding machine.
