Brain regions thought to be uniquely human share many similarities with monkeys

From Science Daily: New research suggests a surprising degree of similarity in the organization of regions of the brain that control language and complex thought processes in humans and monkeys. The study also revealed some key differences. The findings may provide valuable insights into the evolutionary processes that established our ties to other primates but also made us distinctly human. · Go to Brain regions thought to be uniquely human share many similarities with monkeys →

The brain, in exquisite detail

Wed, Jan 8, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on The brain, in exquisite detail

From NY Times: Deanna Barch talks fast, as if she doesn’t want to waste any time getting to the task at hand, which is substantial. She is one of the researchers here at Washington University working on the first interactive wiring diagram of the living, working human brain.

To build this diagram she and her colleagues are doing brain scans and cognitive, psychological, physical and genetic assessments of 1,200 volunteers. They are more than a third of the way through collecting information. Then comes the processing of data, incorporating it into a three-dimensional, interactive map of the healthy human brain showing structure and function, with detail to one and a half cubic millimeters, or less than 0.0001 cubic inches. · Go to The brain, in exquisite detail →

‪Ode to the brain! by Symphony of Science‬

Tue, Jul 12, 2011|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on ‪Ode to the brain! by Symphony of Science‬

The ninth episode in the Symphony of Science music video series. Through the powerful words of scientists Carl Sagan, Robert Winston, Vilayanur Ramachandran, Jill Bolte Taylor, Bill Nye, and Oliver Sacks, it covers different aspects the brain including its evolution, neuron networks, folding, and more. The material sampled for this video comes from Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Jill Bolte Taylor's TED Talk, Vilayanur Ramachandran's TED Talk, Bill Nye's Brain episode, BBC's "The Human Body", Oliver Sachs' TED Talk, Discovery Channel's "Human Body: Pushing the Limits", and more. · Go to ‪Ode to the brain! by Symphony of Science‬‏ →

What Is the Memory Capacity of the Human Brain?

Thu, May 6, 2010|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on What Is the Memory Capacity of the Human Brain?

From Scientific American: “Mr. Osborne, may I be excused? My brain is full,” a student with a particularly tiny head asks his classroom teacher in a classic Far Side comic by Gary Larson. The deadpan answer to this question would be, “No, your brain is almost certainly not full.” Although there must be a physical limit to how many memories we can store, it is extremely large. We don’t have to worry about running out of space in our lifetime. · Go to What Is the Memory Capacity of the Human Brain? →

founded by Antonio Damasio and Hanna Damasio in 2006. Since ancient times, thinkers and scientists have sought to explain how we perceive, interpret, and shape our existence. However, until very recently, researchers interested in these questions have had to rely entirely on conjecture or indirect evidence. Now, recent technological advances in brain imaging and fresh insights into the functioning of the human brain at the level of systems, cells and molecules, provide extraordinary new opportunities for uncovering the neurological underpinnings for a large array of mental functions — from emotion and decision-making to innovation and creativity. · Go to USC Brain and Creativity Institute →
