The network is the brain

Originally uploaded by tintin5021

This is the machine that led to the big brain: NMDA receptor complex (NRC/MASC), that is found at the synapses in the central nervous system which constitute the functional connections between neurons from Genes2Cognition.I put them into wikipedia here

Other interesting groups involved in the discovery that the complex proteins in the synapse connections were the key to our big ole brains were the Institute for Adaptive and Neural computing which studies three main areas: Bioinformatics, Machine Learning and Neuroinformatics and the Keele Institute, a school started the year before I was born to promote interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary scholarship. It’s Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine bridges the interface between new advances in basic science and technology with medicine and clinical practice, bringing together engineers, mathematicians, biologists, physicists and clinicians, all in a single unit.
