Using computers to map neural pathways of the brain

This is exciting news. I wonder whether this will be the gateway to a world where we can download our brains and memories to chips and stuff.

Is there an estimate for how long it will take Aurora21 to map the human connectome, once it comes online? I read the connectome Wikipedia and I do not see what you are referring to. It specifically calls for research into how the connectome changes over time in disease states. It also specifically looks at the effect of genes on the connectome.

It does seem like not all details are there as we speak. I'm thinking medicine will greatly benefit with this in the future. Things like Alzheimer's Disease may finally be treated in the near future.
