Classic video game system used to improve understanding of the brain

The complexity of neural networks makes them difficult to analyze, but humanmade computing systems should be simpler to understand. In a study published in PLOS Computational Biology, researchers applied widely used neuroscience approaches to analyze the classic games console Atari 2600 - which runs the videogame “Donkey Kong” - and found that such approaches do not meaningfully describe how the console’s microprocessor really works.

The field of neuroscience is advancing rapidly. Scientists are able to record the simultaneous activity of more and more neurons in more and more organisms. However, testing the validity of data analysis algorithms is difficult since it is still unclear how even relatively simple neural systems like the brain of a fruit fly work.

Okay, so I’ll do this (TS4 Vintage Glamour) gifting cuz what do I have to lose! (except 10 dollars). I wanna try this out and see what this giveaway deal is all about.
