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.
