Blue Gene/L - Lawrence Livermore Labs
No gerbils, just half a rat brain...
"Recently, Blue Gene/L was in the news when scientists ran a cortical simulator as complex as half of a mouse brain which is thought to have about eight million neurons with each one having up to 8,000 connections with other nerve fibers. When not mimicking half of a rodent’s brain, Blue Gene/L is being used mainly to simulate biochemical processes involving proteins..."
Yeah baby, now that's progress. Just think, with a couple of die shrinks on the Cell architecture and a few more compute nodes thrown in, someday we'll be able to mimic an entire rat brain. And you know, rat brain simulation is big business man, big biz.
