Essay Competition

As in previous years, we have an essay competition and first prize this year is a publication in the Cambridge Medical Journal.  The essay question this year is:  

“If the location, connections and contents of every neuron in the brain were known in great detail, then it would be possible to use that information to describe every function of the brain perfectly.” 

Discuss this statement and to what extent is it true or false using examples/arguments from any field you feel is relevant.

Essays should be no longer than 1500 words and there is no reference limit.  Deadline for accepting essay: 1st February 2019
