Statistical formulazation of experience association and brain plasticity

The following post was prompted by the Quanta Magazine article, reprinted by Digg, and linked below.

This is a fascinating look into the convergence of physics, neuroscience, and information systems learning. I strongly recommend that you give it a read.

It certainly reinforces why learning is so much easier when you are young and the neurons in your brain still have the ability to easily layer their firing abstractions into useful new boundary summations. Wouldn't it be something if they could figure out how to recapture some of that plasticity.

Maybe some form of the new interface between wetware and hardware that the Transhumanists are, in part, so on about, will give us a form of this plasticity via external neuron simulators. Time will tell I guess.
