Blue Brain Project models and images simulate, as they describe it: “The cerebral cortex, the convoluted “grey matter” that makes up 80% of the human brain, is responsible for our ability to remember, think, reflect, empathize, communicate, adapt to new situations and plan for the future. ”
The Learning Standards we impose on children are in little boxes, as the superimposed image above illustrated in a post I wrote a couple of days ago. As a follow up to that post, I suggest you view Blue Brain Project’s video called Flying through the column!
One can only wonder how ideas packaged in little boxes could become become useful in the awesomely networked structure the Blue Brain Project lets us fly through.
