Mouse brain simulated on computer

from the bbc:

US researchers have simulated half a virtual mouse brain on a supercomputer.

The scientists ran a "cortical simulator" that was as big and as complex as half of a mouse brain on the BlueGene L supercomputer.

...the scientists then tried to simulate that of a human being and found they could achieve the same size and complexity of george bush's brain using only a 1950's radioshack electronic hobby kit...
