Henry Markram says the mysteries of the mind can be solved — soon. Mental illness, memory, perception: they’re made of neurons and electric signals, and he plans to find them with a supercomputer that models all the brain’s 100,000,000,000,000 synapses.(Recorded at TEDGlobal, July 2009, Oxford, UK. Duration: 14:51)
