There are about 100 bn neurons in a human brain and maybe a quadrillion synapses. I doubt that the brain is a very good model for a supercomputer, any more than a horse is a good model for a sports car. The design constraints for a brain -- such as being part of a mobile self-reproducing system -- are very different than for a supercomputer.
