Mapping Out a New Era in Brain Research


 The human brain consists of over 100 billion neurons organized in a complex structures; however, new technology is enabling neuroscientists to map the brain's connection. The Human Connectome Project, funded by the U.S. government, is determind in creating a "connectome", a map of nerve cells.





A German engineering company Siemens developed a machine to track the passage of water molecules through nerve fibers in order to create an accurate picture of the brain's structure and its neuronal pathways.





This technological advancement is raising hopes that brain disorders such as autism and schizophrenia will be better understood or perhaps cured in the future.
