I think you concentrate on hippocampus because cells here form tin slices, 
when cut along these slices you get whole cell arrays without too much 

destruction, so that these cells can be studied on a small plate. There has been
clam about an electronics neural network working this way. The problem is to 

get the same analysis level for other parts of the bain so that we can build an
electronics "space" where a full brain can be uploaded. This will implies the 
building of a brain reader.

About the compactnes of electronics devices: You have to take into account 
the speed of electronics vs that of biochemical systems. If an electronics 

neuron is 100,000 time bulky that the bio-neuron and work 100,000 time faster, 
can model 100,000 neurons, the volume/neuron is the same.

Even if the resulting brain is far bigger that the original one, this is not 
a problem. A robot body can be teleoperated.
