A spectacular new map of the brain, detailing nearly 100 previously unknown regions
It is amazing how much we've learned about the brain in the past year.
Last Summer, experts created a new map of the brain that included 97 newly discovered regions. This is the first comprehensive map of the brain since neurologist Korbinian Brodmann published a hand-drawn map in 1907, cataloguing the then-known 52 brain regions. Today's new map now includes 180 regions.
The research for this map was started four years ago by neuroscientist Matthew Glasser and his colleagues. They pulled data collected by the Human Connectome Project which used a powerful scanner to record brain activity during a variety of different tests. Read more.
