Building a Robot's Brain
Dr. Harris explains his team’s project to build a computational model of a brain – starting with the behavior of a single neuron and multiplying it hundreds of thousands of times to simulate brain activity. This model then drives robots who scurry through a maze like a mouse searching for sustenance.
This event is part of Brain Awareness Week (BAW), a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. The Integrative Neuroscience Center of Biomedical Research Excellence and the Sierra Nevada Society for Neuroscience present a host of student oriented activities March 11-13, 2014, at the University of Nevada, Reno to celebrate and explore the wonders of the brain.
