Further Questions
1) When does the volleyball team return during the Summer to take classes and train?

2) How is the dining system for athletes? Do they go to a training table for each meal or only for dinner/ lunch?

3) Does the volleyball team charter to most volleyball games?

4) Do some volleyball players travel abroad during the summer or is the schedule too limiting?

5) Where is the student athlete academic center located? How do you schedule a tutor or attend study hall?
Stanford bioengineers have created microships based on the human brain - 9,000 times faster and using significantly less power than a typical PC. The circuit board, Neurogrid, consists of 16 custom-designed "Neurocore". The Neurogrid is about the size of an iPad and can simulate orders of magnitude more neurons and synapses than other brain mimics on the power it takes to run a tablet computer.
