Brain Map Updated and 97 New Regions Identified

If you look at the brain it looks like a fleshy folds and bulges with no features, but it is actually grouped into invisible territories. Each has its own specialized functions, like some neurons become active when you smell something, others when you see colors or when you are engaged in activity.

The new and updated brain map described in a study published on July 20, 2016 on shows and discussed detailed part of the brain that deals with human senses, motion, problem solving and emotional regulation.  That part of the brain is named cerebral cortex, and it’s the brain’s outer layer of nerve tissue. Experts called the research a milestone in neuroscience it shows 97 previously unknown regions which is revolutionary. It is a glimpse into the inner working of the brain.

Scientists will be able to use this new study to understand virtually every aspect of the brain, from its development from birth to adulthood and how it can be corrupted by diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.

The researchers generated the map using advanced scanners and computers running artificial intelligence programs that “learned” to identify the brain’s hidden regions from vast amounts of data collected from hundreds of test subjects. They employ very sophisticated and broader study compared to the study that has been previously done. They use the data from the Human Connectome Project, an effort funded by the National Institutes of Health to better understand how the human brain works by compiling as much neural data as possible. Combining all the data have helped them identify these new regions.

The updated brain map could help neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists in their work and research.
