FFAI Brain Mapping and Uploading by Mind Map: FFAI Brain Mapping and Uploading

1. Brain Simulation

2. 3D Reconstruction

3. 3D imaging

3.1. old

3.1.1. PET scanning

3.1.2. MRI and fMRI

3.2. MRI tract imaging

4. traditional tracing

4.1. idea

4.1.1. like "genome"

4.1.2. identify how parts of the brain connect to each other

4.1.3. connectivity both at the cellular level and at the "module" level

4.2. traditional approach

4.2.1. gross neuroanatomy

4.2.2. fine neuroanatomy

4.3. tracing

4.3.1. inject tracer substance into one part of the brain

4.3.2. it gets transported along neural connections

4.3.3. look where it comes out

4.3.4. illustration

4.3.5. actual tracing

4.4. gross 3D reconstruction

4.4.1. example

5. goals

5.1. precisely map the structure of the brain or parts of the brain

5.2. map local circuits

5.3. map general connectivity (connectome)

5.4. map individual connectivity and state

6. purpose

6.1. understanding brain function

6.1.1. we need much more wiring diagram info in order to understand brain function and validate theories

6.2. brain simulation and "mind uploading"

6.2.1. if dualism is false, a physical simulation of the brain should result in a functioning mind

6.2.2. test this idea directly by performing a full physical simulation of the brain

7. techniques

7.1. non-invasive brain scanning

7.2. staining-slicing-serial scanning

7.3. extensive image processing and 3D reconstruction

7.4. high performance simulation
