Blue Brain

Description
Human brain, the most valuable creation of God.The man is called intelligent because of the Brain.But we loss the knowledge of a brain when the body is destroyed after the death .“BLUE BRAIN”- The name of the world’s first virtual brain. That means a machine that can function as human brain.The human brain has unlocked many of nature's secrets, but the secrets of the brain itself have remained elusive to scientists. Decades of probing into the brain's functioning hasn't yet given scientists a full grasp of the way the brain functions or its circuitry.
