Can Skynet be Far Behind?

Ron gets a very brainy no-prize for bringing us this Discovery Channel article detailing the creation of yet another "simulated brain". This time, scientists are using microprocessors linked together to create neuron-like functions. The primary innovation seems to be the removal of a clock... normal microprocessors need them, neurons don't. By creating microprocessors that don't, the scientists are hoping for a much more accurate model. Ultimately, it's hoped the device will allow a much more detailed look at how brains function.
