comment Supercomputer Vs Human Brain
In my opinion this is a much better answer than Devashish Das (OP)'s answer which got 15 up votes and is chosen as an answer at the moment.

Search for "rebound excitation" or "rebound spiking".

Sure, you can regularize your solution, and put extra constraints to get a better solution, but do you really recover the behavior of the cortical neurons with a thousand dipole model? Are dipoles the right representation for neural computation? We don't know the answer, but I'm betting they are insufficient.
