Brain Mapping through the Human Connectome Project


The Human Connectome Project’s goal is to map the large-scale connections of 1,200 healthy adult human brains, using cutting-edge and noninvasive techniques through neuroimaging. They hope this research will lead to invaluable information about brain connectivity, how it relates to human behavior, and how genetic and environmental factors lead to individual differences in brain circuitry.

No matter how long scientists study the brain they still don’t totally understand it. What they do know is that the brain, like any muscle, does wither and die off if not used. The connections begin to shrink and that cuts off communication. When communication is cut off memories can’t be formed and you lose [...]

Frozen In Time

Healthy brains are able to store memories in different regions – depending on what the memory is used for. What about people who have sustained [...]
