It would seem, after much reading, that each neuron in the brain operates as a single celled organism – hence, many at the same time (in parallel).  Just like the idea for building a Large Hadron Collider for splitting particles, why not also construct a large building with 1,000,000 or more CPU cores, in which each core simulates a single neuron?  Then we can try to mimic brains of insects at least.

So, I was just thinking about how our brains can slowly repair itself over time, as new neurons learn to take over – then I had a thought:  What would happen if, after a person’s heart stops, they keep the person on a HLM (heart and lung) machine (to prevent further brain damage), with a modified pacemaker, and see if, over time, the heart learns to start beating again?  Interesting …
