" ... In this work, we present a 2.5-million-neuron model of the brain (called “Spaun”) that bridges this gap (between neural activity and biological function) by exhibiting many different behaviors. The model is presented only with visual image sequences, and it draws all of its responses with a physically modeled arm. Although simplified, the model captures many aspects of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and psychological behavior, which we demonstrate via eight diverse tasks."
