DailyDirt: Real Brains

Human brains are amazingly efficient compared to any computer built so far. Previously, we pointed out some projects to simulate brain activity in various ways. But there's nothing like the real thing. Here are just a few interesting links on detecting and improving our conscious grey matter. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
