Recently a link was referenced that discussed how serial sectioning
of brains is being automated:
http://www.mcb.harvard.edu/lichtman/ATLUM/ATLUM_web.htm I have a
question about this. Will this technology yield a model of the dynamics
of brain activity or will it be another taxonomy of brain structures? It
seems that dynamics are completely missing from the narrative about
scanning and uploading our brains into Turing Machines. How exactly is a
topological map of the structure of the brain contain any information
about the specifics of brain activity?
At best it might allow us to toss out models of dynamics that have
implications that would contradict the topology structure, but nothing
at all about how the topologies evolve.
