Combining neuroscience and chemical engineering, researchers at Stanford University have developed a process that renders a mouse brain transparent. The brain remains whole — not sliced or sectioned in any way — with its three-dimensional complexity of fine wiring and molecular structures completely intact and able to be measured and probed at will with visible light and chemicals.
Recently Nikola Danaylov of Singularity 1 on 1 interviewed Chris Eliasmith and discussed a variety of topics including the story behind his desire to create the breakthrough brain simulation, SPAUN. Eliasmith is working on the Semantic Pointer Architecture as a new model of the brain and is using SPAUN to explore the idea, and will also soon be releasing a book, How To Build A Brain, that will outline the concept.

Neuroscience and artificial intelligence expert, Jeff Hawkins, recently gave a Google Tech Talk, where he discussed recent advances in understanding the neocortex and how we are applying them to model millions of high velocity data streams.
A new resin material that can be molded into complex, highly conductive 3D structures with features just a few microns across has been developed by Tokyo Institute of Technology. Combined with state-of-the-art micro-sculpting techniques, the new resin holds promise for making customized electrodes for fuel cells or batteries, or biosensor interfaces for medical uses.
