If we compare the human brain to a DAC chip, what kind of high/low resolution can it achieve; bit depth, sample rate and amount of jitter wise?
...Assuming a good power supply, a good clock, good sync, good implementation.

What DAC type are you? Did you take measurements?

According to a New Scientist article I am reading(Eight mysteries of the brain), the brain has a memory capacity of 1 petabyte(equivalent to that of the whole WWW).

This may be so but the same problem as with the WWW arises: how to frame the question.

That can't be right.

I'm unable to remember what the post immediately preceding yours says.

I even get surprised when I look back at some old thread and see something I wrote (that I don't remember).

(like this post, gimme a few minutes)

What's the deal with hypnosis?

Can they really turn me into a chicken for five minutes?

I can believe it. The issue I suspect is not the memory but getting access to it.
