Forecasting connectomics - a naive Kurzweili…

The connectome of an organism is a map of all neurons and their connections. This may be thought of as a graph with the neurons as nodes and synaptic connections as edges. However, to successfully simulate an organism’s brain using a connectome, more information will be needed. Here we take the term ‘connectome’ to refer to the graph and the underlying electron microscopy images of the neurons, which contain much more information.
