Studying Contagious Yawning Might Help Us Build Better Societies | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
We often turn to dogs and to chimpanzees to understand our species. Chimpanzees are our closest relatives (with bonobos), while centuries of selective breeding have turned dogs into a species uniquely suited to comprehend our own social cues.

The Human Brain Project - ScienceGymnasium | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it

The brain, with its billions of interconnected neurons, is without any doubt the most complex organ in the body and it will be a long time before we understand all its mysteries. The Human Brain Project proposes a completely new approach. The project is integrating everything we know about the brain into computer models and using these models to simulate the actual working of the brain. Ultimately, it will attempt to simulate the complete human brain. The models built by the project will cover all the different levels of brain organisation -- from individual neurons through to the complete cortex. The goal is to bring about a revolution in neuroscience and medicine and to derive new information technologies directly from the architecture of the brain. - See more at: http://www.sciencegymnasium.com/2013/10/the-human-brain-project.html#sthash.5OjcBjF7.dpuf
