If a brain is just a biological computer
, as most neuroscientists assume, mysterious qualities like intuition should turn out to be a matter of calculation, searching a neurological database of possible solutions.
The new range of attractive substances could be used to program and control the mold, which is used as a biological computer
in maze solving and other calculations.
When suitable software was applied to the biological computer
, it could decrypt, separately, fluorescent images of The Scripps Research Institute and Technion logos.
Following his boundary-breaking neuroscience book The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, co-authored with Denyse O'Leary, Brain Wars makes a powerful and provocative case against the widely held view equating human beings to complex biological computers
Bio-engineers are working on the development of biological computers
with the aim of designing small circuits made from biological material that can be integrated into cells to change their functions.
Scientists are not looking to make biological computers
but rather by using biological techniques to make faster and smaller computers out of the familiar computer chip material silicon.
