Summary
In one of the world's most powerful computers, 10,000 electronic brain cell clones are operating independently. In the next ten years Henry Markram wants to simulate the entire workings of the human brain. With his "Blue Brain" project in Lausanne in Switzerland the brain researcher has set new standards in brain research. This documentary shows, using examples from everyday life, the rivalry between those who believe in determinist theories and advocates of free will and takes a look at the results of brain research over the last couple of years.
