TED: MIT Researcher Sebastian Seung on the Connectome Project

The Human Connectome is a collaborative project to map the entire neural network of a human brain. Seung really gets going around minute 2.

The first half of the presentation: a visualization of the complexity of the human brain.

The second half of Seung’s talk: how neuroscientists might go about testing the neural basis of identity.
