In the 16 Jan Nature, News and Views, there was a piece on neurons
possibly being more complex than had been thought. Nonlinear responses,
multiplicative instead of additive functions, and shifts in dendritic
membrane potentials, which the researchers thought could be another
storage mechanism.

This could make uploading harder, if they're doing more computation and
storage in themselves, not just as a network.
