Don’t miss Dr. Richard Roche in The Irish Times today!

Here’s an excerpt of what Richard thinks about the recently funded Human Brain Project:

“The scope here is enormous – you are dealing with the most complex object we know of in the universe,” he says. “The brain is a black box composed of lots more black boxes and we are barely scratching the surface of our understanding of it.

“But at the end of the day, we are scientists. We are supposed to be tackling the difficult questions and trying to unravel these things.”

 “And we will learn an awful lot along the way, not only about how the brain does work but also about how it doesn’t work, in both normality and in diseases and disorders. I like that these projects are asking why not, instead of why.”
