Computational neuroscientist and 2010 PopTech Science Fellow H. Sebastian Seung conducts pioneering research on the wiring of the brain, and what it reveals about genetics, personality, and memory. At our 2010 Science and Living Systems Salon Seung suggests that complex maps of neural connective structures, or connectomes, will reveal that our experiences literally shape our brains.
