This image could be the first step toward mapping human thoughts

Today we are closer than ever to understanding the biological basis of human thought. In a major first for neuroscience, researchers have produced an image showing almost an entire vertebrate brain at work — down to the level of individual neurons. Soon we'll have a human brain "activity map" which reveals how… »3/19/13 4:00pm3/19/13 4:00pm


Scientists record the first video of thoughts forming in the brain

Japanese researchers have recorded a real-time video of thoughts forming in the brain of a live animal as it stalks its prey. The breakthrough was made possible by using zebrafish — a species with a translucent head — and a fluorescent protein that lights up when single neurons are activated. And this study may… »2/01/13 11:00am2/01/13 11:00am
