Figure 1. This figure shows the brain with a typical circuit board plot
In figure 2, we see a brain graph with those spark points, which represent the electrical pulse that travels through our neuro network.

Although our technology is progressing exponentially in the past decades, there are still many questions of our brain that we do not understand yet. Brain simulation research has been a hot spot among all other brain research after we entered 21st century. The idea behind this is to using a computer to simulate human brain, and if we can achieve this through a silicon chips based computer, it will be a huge revolution to artificial intelligence since we might be able to build a robot with human brain (simulated program). A organization called 'Human Brain Project' is currently working on brain mapping and simulation, and here is link for a intro video on mouse brain simulation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldXEuUVkDuw.
