It's a classic line, from Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Spock's Brain", in which we discover that if you just connect the vocal chords, the patient can direct you in connecting the rest of the nerves!
The project, which the administration has been looking to unveil as early as March, will include federal agencies, private foundations and teams of neuroscientists and nanoscientists in a concerted effort to advance the knowledge of the brain’s billions of neurons and gain greater insights into perception, actions and, ultimately, consciousness. Scientists with the highest hopes for the project also see it as a way to develop the technology essential to understanding diseases like and , as well as to find new therapies for a variety of mental illnesses. Moreover, the project holds the potential of paving the way for advances in artificial intelligence.

What's the Latest Development? Neuroscientists at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have published the first data set to come from a project that will create the world's first whole-brain wiring diagram of a vertebrate, specifically a mouse. " The data consist of gigapixel images (each close to 1 billion pixels) of whole-brain sections that can be zoomed to show individual neurons and their processes, providing a 'virtual microscope.'" By changing the resolution of the images, scientists and interested members of the public can view the brain's neural pathways through three-dimensional brain space.
