Mouse brain simulated on computer

"US researchers have simulated half a virtual mouse brain on a supercomputer

The vast complexity of the simulation meant that it was only run for ten seconds at a speed ten times slower than real life - the equivalent of one second in a real mouse brain.

The researchers say that although the simulation shared some similarities with a mouse's mental make-up in terms of nerves and connections it lacked the structures seen in real mice brains."

Not quite there yet then
