Intact, ultrastructure-quality human brain bank trending idea

The ultimate goal of neuroscience is to understand precisely how the dynamics of the brain's neuronal networks gives rise to intelligence and mind. Every neuroscientist knows how difficult it has been to make significant progress toward that goal. But why has it been so difficult? A century of dedicated neuroscience research has already identified most of the key structures and molecules which determine brain function... more »

Has evolution conserved canonical computing microcircuitry? trending idea

Has evolution conserved microcircuitry that performs a small number of identifiable, verifiable canonical computations?

If so, connectomes can add value not by their completeness, but by their presentation of motifs which can be categorized as one of a number of basis functions. In spite of the ongoing, global, development of connectomes, we incompletely understand these general and reductionist questions:

Common Neural Frameworks trending idea

It seems obvious that any one approach to mapping neural systems will leave behind a tremendous opportunity for many specific areas of science that are important for understanding of how neural systems work. This is true even from a fundamental resolution perspective as no conceivable approach could faithfully represent the detail required to describe circuit topology relationships between neurons and glia including synapses... more »

Discover the missing link in the connectome trending idea

When we say we don't understand how the brain works, what we mean is that we don't understand how the brain generates its most important and unique function - first-person inner sensations of different higher brain functions (such as memory and perception) within it (that we call "mind"). Now the question is, "How to understand the connectome that provides this function?" At this point, we can proceed in two ways. First... more »

Pyramidal tract reconstruction in vivo trending idea

Pyramidal tract of an HCP subject reconstructed in vivo using Radial DSI and ODF-Fingerprinting. Improved reconstruction of fibers crossing at shallow angles ensured by ODF-Fingerprinting allowed to reproduce the reach fanning shape of cortical terminations of the tract. Images were rendered in DSI Studio.
