Why It Matters: The groundbreaking brain map is of a baby fruit fly and shows 3,000+ neurons, helping to pave the way for a better understanding of humans’ 80 billion+ neuron network. Bottom Line: "What we learned about code for fruit flies will have implications for the code for humans. That's what we want to understand -- how to write a program that leads to a human brain network,” said Vogelstein.
