48 – Cryonics 2 – Lacuna Matata (with Robert McIntyre)

We speak with Robert McIntyre, winner of the Small Animal Brain Preservation Prize, about recent advances in brain preservation.

A pretty good introduction to connectomics is this TED Talk by Sebastian Seung

Robert recommends some papers on recent advances in scanning and simulation of brain tissue — 1, 2, 3, 4 — and also the Whole Brain Emulation Roadmap

Robert’s paper on Aldehyde-Stabilized Cryopreservation, as well as a more straight-forward introduction.
