Could a Neuroscientist Understand a Microprocessor?

Very interesting perspective. There is a popular belief in neuroscience that we are primarily data limited, and that producing large, multimodal, and complex datasets will, with the help of advanced data analysis algorithms, lead to fundamental insights into the way the brain processes information.
