As humanity teeters on the brink, fears mount over the cognitive powers of the aging global leaders on whose shoulders rests the task of averting human extinction. This moment is thus opportune for The Yuan to unveil our new brain science series, starting on April 1, to catalog its interplay with AI.


Dear Contributor, The human brain is believed to be the most complex system known to science. Its 100 billion neurons - each connected to 10,000 others - conduct nerve signals at speeds of up to 120 meters (394 feet) per second, or 432km/h (275mph). The tally of these neurons equals the total number of observable galaxies in the universe - whose form and structure each human brain also reflects - and of which it is thus a microcosm.

Brain science spans various disciplines, encompassing psychology, psychiatry, physiology, linguistics, data science, gerontology, religion, computer science, philosophy, criminal science, and others. In short, it has to do with every subject of which the human ‘mind’ can conceive.

Mind over matter, or mind is matter? That is the question with which humans grapple, as neuroscience strives to get to the ‘heart and soul’ of the analysis to quantify the nature of consciousness, physical sensations, and of the very human condition itself.
