What if they made an artificial ADHD brain?

Posted 11-30-12 at 12:08 PM by KCTang
I just read a neat article on how the University of Waterloo (Canada, represent!) has created 'the most realistic human brain'.

The model is generated by 2.5 million simulated neurons. And LOTS of computing power.

It even struggles to remember more numbers than its working memory can fit...

So... what if we lowered its' working memory to ADHD levels... could we perform tests of our own?

Here's the link to the full article. What do you think?

    Isn't it?

    I asked these guys about whether they could do an ADHD mockup brain and they said that it was a direction they wanted to go in. Just maybe not quite yet since the research is in its infancy still.
