*********SPAIN OUT-STARTRACK OUT******The spanish Neuroscientist from Columbia University Rafael Yuste present in Madrid his proyect " Brain Activity Map." Into the Santander Bank Fouººndation conferences. As his said in his website: The goal of our laboratory is to understand the function of the cortical microcircuit. The cortex constitutes the larger part of the brain in mammals. In humans it is the primary site of mental functions like perception, memory, control of voluntary movements, imagination, language and music. No accepted unitary theory of cortical function exists yet; nevertheless, the basic cortical microcircuitry develops in stereotyped fashion, is similar in different cortical areas and in different species, and has apparently not changed much in evolution since its appearance. At the same time, the cortex participates in apparently widely different computational tasks, resembling a "Turing machine". Because of this, it is conceivable that a "canonical" cortical microcircuit may exist and implement a relatively simple, and flexible, computation. March 21, 2014.
