Behold the Most Complicated Object in the Known Universe

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

We’ve learned more about the human brain in last decade than in all of human history. As the secrets of the living brain are being revealed through high-tech scans by physicists, take a look at what the future has in store. In the next decades scientists will create a map of the brain's 100 billion neurons and how they connect, and we'll have technologies that can save our memories—or erase them.
