The human brain builds structures in 11 dimensions represented on the above image. By “dimensions,” they mean abstract mathematical spaces, not other physical realms with 86 billion neurons.
The goal of the Blue Brain Project, which is based in Switzerland, is to digitally create a “biologically detailed” simulation of the human brain.
To get a clearer vision of how such an immense network operates to form our thoughts and actions, the scientists employed super-computers and a peculiar branch of math.
The team based its current research on the digital model of the neocortex that it finished in 2015.
They probed the way this digital neocortex responded by using the mathematical system of algebraic topology. ~ Big Think
