100 New Regions Identified in Updated Brain Map

Human brain is carved up into invisible territories and each territory is specialized having different groups of neurons, some of which become active when we read, others when we recognize faces and yet others when we raise our hands. But in a latest development that many experts have been dubbing as a milestone in neuroscience, researchers have published a spectacular new map of the brain, which highlights in detail nearly 100 previously unknown regions of the human mind. Through this detailing, scientists hope to understand various stages of the development of brain, including how it develops in children, how it ages over decades and what are the reasons behind its getting affected by diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia. For creating the map, scientists used advanced scanners and computers. These devices…
