Connectome map more than doubles human cortex’s known regions… ”

“The researchers discovered that our brain’s cortex, or outer mantle, is composed of 180 distinct areas per hemisphere. For example, the image above shows areas connected to the three main senses – hearing (red), touch (green) vision (blue) and opposing cognitive systems (light and dark). The map is based on data from resting state fMRI scans performed as part of the Human Connectome Project.”    Matthew Glasser, Ph.D., and David Van Essen, Ph.D., Washington University.

Already looking forward to learning more about it and to implement this new knowledge at the Bright Brain Centre London!
