Can we reverse-engineer the brain?
Michael Roukes, PhD. – California Institute of Technology

Annual Quantum Public Lecture
Presented by the Institute for Quantum Science and Technology and the Department of Physics and Astronomy
Although knowledge of the neuron role for brain computation has advanced significantly, we are far from understanding how brain circuits comprising complex neuron assemblies can process information, thus leading to the U.S. BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies). I will discuss the tools we are creating for massively parallel interrogation of brain activity and the potential applications.
