Mouse Brain Mapped in Greatest Detail Yet | Biology Australian scientists have created the most detailed atlas of the mouse brain, a development that is helping in the fight against brain disease. 3D surface renderings of the mouse neocortex. Color codes for all segmented regions are shown below (Jeremy F.P. “The new brain atlas provided a fundamental tool for the neuroscience community,” said Dr Jeremy Ullmann, lead author of a paper describing the atlas in the journal NeuroImage. The new tool will allow researchers to map what parts of the brain are affected in mouse models of brain disease – such as brain cancer, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimers disease. “The mouse is now the most widely used animal model for neuroscience research and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is fundamental to investigating changes in the brain,” Dr Ullman said. “Our atlas is already much in demand internationally because it allows researchers to use MRI to automatically map brain structures.” Bibliographic information: Jeremy F.P.

Map Your Mind - Whose #BRAINCHILD are you? | Mic Map Your Mind shows which areas of the brain are associated with particular attributes or behaviors, based on the latest scientific research. The data that powers Map Your Mind comes from peer-reviewed, scientific studies published in reputable academic journals over the last decade. Many of the studies employ fMRI technology to measure blood flow and areas of fluctuating activity in the brain. A special thank you to Moran Cerf, Ph.D., a leading researcher in behavior, emotion and decision making at Northwestern University, and Kevin Weiner, a specialist in perception and cognition at Stanford's Vision & Perception Neuroscience Lab and the Institute for Applied Neuroscience, for their advice and guidance. “Liz Taylor As Cleopatra In Rome 1962” Credit: Keystone-France / Getty “Portrait Of Voltaire By Quentin La Tour In 1736” “FILE PHOTO: Biopic Roles Traditionally Lead As Award Season Begins With Golden Globe And SAG Nominations” Credit: Dave M. “File:Joan of Arc WWI lithograph2.jpg”

10 Great Sites for Reviewing Brain Anatomy | Marzieh Ghiasi I’ve been absolutely immersed in brain anatomy (which I now heart) for the past eight months. In the process I’ve amassed a rather large collection of links. I’ve listed some of the better resources below, hopefully others will find this helpful. Image Source: the Morbid Anatomy Collection 1. 2. 3. 4. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Honorable MentionThe Whole Brain Atlas (Harvard University) is a fantastic site if you’re interested in aging and degenerating and diseased brains. Permanent linkMarzieh Ghiasi

Использование BrainWave Generator Скачать программу Бинауральная стимуляция головного мозга Люди, которые исследовали работу головного мозга человека просекли, что в различных состояниях своей активности, он (мозг) работает на разных частотах. Каждая из частот имеет важную функцию. АЛЬФА: 7-12 герц. ДЕЛЬТА: 0 - 4 герц. Технические вопросы Вообще говоря такие низкие частоты невозможно транслировать при помощи обычных аудиосредств (и воспринимать при помощи обычных ушей), поэтому и придумали эту штуку со стереоэффектом. Расшифровка встроенных наборов частот BUILTIN: Attention focusing 1 (cyclic): Фокусирование внимания (циклическое). BUILTIN: Attention focusing 2 (from drowsiness): Фокусировка внимания (из drowsiness) Помогает фокусировке внимания с переходом из низкой альфы к высокой бета частоте. BUILTIN: Creativity increase 1 (7 to 6 Hz): Увеличение ТВОРЧЕСКИХ СИЛ 1 (7 - 6 Hz) Порождает состояние повышенных творческих сил, используя три изменяющихся оттенка тета-тонов.

Neuroanatomy—A Primer The human brain is a unique structure that boasts a complex three-dimensional architecture. Neuroscientists are only beginning to understand how the different parts of this intricate configuration work together to produce behavior. In the numerous neuroimaging studies that are published weekly, researchers use common neuroanatomical terms to denote location, organization, and, at times, implied function. The basics Perched on top of the spinal column, the brain is the epicenter of the human nervous system. The cerebral cortex is divided into two hemispheres connected by the corpus callosum, a bridge of wide, flat neural fibers that act as communication relays between the two sides.

Folds and grooves The cortex is, at its most basic, an extended pane of neural tissue that is gathered and pleated to fit inside the skull cavity. The importance of white matter

About These Pages The pages represent an online biology textbook. It has always seemed to me that the many parts that make up the subject of biology are related to each other more like the nodes of a web than as a linear collection of independent topics. Another disadvantage of printed textbooks is the inevitable delay between the time that new advances in biology are reported and the time that they can become incorporated in a printed book (often several years).

Nervous System Intro Humans, like all living organisms, can respond to their environment. Humans have two complimentary control systems to do this: the nervous system and the endocrine (hormonal) system. The human nervous system controls everything from breathing and producing digestive enzymes, to memory and intelligence. Nerve Cells [back to top] The nervous system composed of nerve cells, or neurones: A neurone has a cell body with extensions leading off it. There are several differences between axons and dendrites: The Reflex Arc [back to top] The three types of neurones are arranged in circuits and networks, the simplest of which is the reflex arc. In a simple reflex arc, such as the knee jerk, a stimulus is detected by a receptor cell, which synapses with a sensory neurone. Reflex arc can also be represented by a simple flow diagram: Organisation Of The Human Nervous System [back to top] The human nervous system is far more complex than a simple reflex arc, although the same stages still apply.

Why Comparative Neurobiology? Why have I chosen to create a website entirely dedicated to the neuroanatomy and related issues of a number of different species? Why not focus just on humans? What is the value in comparison studies? A comparative approach allows us to examine the various aspects of diversity in nature. Total brain size alone may not be a sufficient study since the same size found in different species may be the result of a differential growth of different brain parts. It is important to realize that an animal's (including man!) So, we've already started asking questions about behavior.
