We are living in a decade recently declared as the “Decade of the Brain”. Neuroscientists may soon manage to work out a functional map of the brain, thanks to technologies that open windows on the mind. With the average human brain consisting of 15 billion neurons, roughly equal to the number of stars in our milky way, each receiving signals through as many as 10,000 synapses, it is quite a view. “The brain is the last and greatest biological frontier”, says James Weston codiscoverer of DNA, considered to be the most complex piece of biological machinery on earth.
