For an International Decade of the Mind|
Olds, James L.
The International Decade of the Mind Project seeks to harness science across multiple disciplines to discover how human "mind" emerges from the biological activity of human brains. Given the complexity of the human brain, with approximately 1011 neurons each with 104 connections, the effort will be daunting and require resources and expertise from many nations. The Decade of the Mind Project began as a United States initiative in 2007 and expanded to Europe in 2009 and then Asia in 2010. Here we advocate for a team-based approach to the Decade of the Mind initiative, where each nation contributes to the overall scientific effort with its own indigenous scientific expertise.
