3-D Brain Scans
The brain remains one of the least understood aspects of human biology. Today, it is believed that if the total possible knowledge of our brains was represented as a mile, current research would have traveled only three inches.
That a lot of pace to cover ahead of us.
This amazing video by National Geographic shows how current research is shaping our understanding of the brain today. By using ultrathin slices of mouse brain tissue, researchers have been able to render maps of synapses to show how brain cells communicate. Research like this is critical to being able to better understand the brain in the future, and even fight back against neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s in the future.
