Setting up computational infrastructure is an important but extremely unexciting step in neural simulation. The very fundamentals of *what* we should be simulating are still largely unknown. If anyone has read more on the research please correct me, but my guess is they are running simulating 8 million undifferentiated neurons disconnected from real-world input. This isn't a "mouse brain", they just call it such because the number of "neurons" is similar.
