The above video was created by Mika Mautner, a student and researcher for Carboncopies. It features an interview with Randal Koene who describes the current state of neuroscience as it relates to Whole Brain Emulation or mind uploading.
In California, radical scientists and billionaire backers think the technology to extend life – by uploading minds to exist separately from the body – is only a few years away.

An interview with the Machine Learning Research Institute and Dr. Randal Koene on Whole Brain Emulation.
FRONTIERS IN SYSTEM NEUROSCIENCE
Enhancing brain function entails controlling neuronal function. There are several methods available for this which led to some relevant experimental data. Read about them here.
FUTURE OF HUMANITY INSTITUTE
Watch Dr. Koene discuss Substrate Independent Minds.
In pursuing a Utopian world of perfect post-humans, we may irrevocably undermine what makes us human in the first place. Our lives are a composite of actions and experiences, and our minds depend on our bodies and the environment - but do they have to?
In this interview, Dr. Randal Koene gives a wonderful overview of the current state and future prospects of R&D regarding substrate-independent minds.
