The Human Connectome Project zeroes in on the firmware of the brain

The Human Connectome Project zeroes in on the firmware of the brain “The brain is not like a computer that can support any operating system and run any software,” says neuroscientist David Van Essen, Principal Investigator of the Human Connectome Project.“Instead, the software — how the brain works — is intimately correlated with the brain’s structure — its hardware, so to speak.

Scientists isolate the brain’s ‘physics engine,’ could lead to faster, more agile robots

Scientists isolate the brain’s ‘physics engine,’ could lead to faster, more agile robots Now, for the first time, Johns Hopkins scientists have located the part of the brain responsible for this basic, fundamental processing.These brain regions are also part of the multiple demand network, a widespread set of functional areas.

Groundbreaking fMRI study finds 4 distinct neurological subtypes of depression

Groundbreaking fMRI study finds 4 distinct neurological subtypes of depression The study captured fMRI brain scans from more than a thousand participants, in order to answer a question: What’s different between the brains of healthy people and those with depression?The authors refer to the axes as a shared pathological core, by which we can understand the relationship between brain connectivity and the symptoms of depression.
