    Very fascinating work on brain mapping!!

    Really comprehensive overview of the work that's being done to map the inner workings of the brain, on a neuronal level! I would have liked to hear a bit more about the computer software the research team was using, and more about how it has advanced; but, I think the focus was well placed, that being on how the human brain is being mapped out.
