This New, Ultra-Detailed Map Of The Brain Could Change Medicine

A group of researchers have developed a new map of the cerebral cortex of the human brain, revealing 180 new distinct regions in each hemisphere. Representing the most detailed map of the brain yet, it’s an achievement of a longstanding goal, and researchers say it will provide a crucial tool to understand how differences in even extremely small brain regions relate to behavior and disease. The human cerebral cortex represents the outermost region of the brain and is involved in complex functions by helping us to use our muscles, process incoming senses as well as to understand language and process logical reasoning. These abilities of the cerebral cortex are present in some other mammals, but the advanced abilities of ours are part of what distinguishes us and makes us human.…
