  • Atlas
  • The atlas, which took a decade to complete, required slicing a brain into thousands of thin sections and digitally stitching them back together with the help of supercomputers. (technologyreview.com)
  • BigBrain A high-resolution 3D atlas of the human brain created as part of the HBP. (wikipedia.org)
  • Then the cellular architecture is statistically analyzed and digitally reconstructed in 3-D. With her colleague, Prof. Dr. Karl Zilles, and a large team of medical doctors, physicists, biologists, mathematicians and graduate students, Prof. Dr. Katrin Amunts is developing a unique brain atlas that will gradually replace Brodmann's map from 1909.

  • Brain Maps is an online, interactive brain atlas, including both primate and non-primate brains. (programmableweb.com)
  • structures
  • Breakthrough A high-resolution map that shows structures of the human brain as small as 20 micrometers. (technologyreview.com)
  • NeuroNames Defines the brain in terms of about 550 primary structures (about 850 unique structures) to which all other structures, names, and synonyms are related. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although Brodmann's discovery was groundbreaking, the hundredyear- old map is merely a schematic drawing, not the three-dimensional record that is needed today as a basis for comparison in modern imaging studies to assign patient data to the microscopic structures of the brain. (fz-juelich.de)
  • tumor
  • The story of Dan, a musician and music teacher with a brain tumor, who went through the Translational Brain Mapping program for personalized music mapping. (rochester.edu)
  • When music teacher Dan Fabbio played a simple melody on his saxophone as he laid on the operating table after his brain tumor had been removed, music never sounded so sweet. (rochester.edu)
  • New imaging technique helps predict how vision recovers after brain tumor removal. (rochester.edu)
  • tissue
  • The brain, like any other tissue, is usually opaque because the fats in its cells block light. (technologyreview.com)
  • A magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is a test that generates images of the brain and adjacent tissue by use of radio waves and magnetic fields, states Medl. (reference.com)
  • Using Positron Emission tomography to map inflammation, he has been able to show that even without obvious tissue damage, people who report whiplash pain have more inflammation in their necks. (voanews.com)
  • The human brain contains about 1,500 cm³ of brain tissue, and the terrain is quite something. (fz-juelich.de)
  • computational
  • One is computational: Evans says such a map of the brain might contain several petabytes of data, which computers today can't easily navigate in real time, though he's optimistic that they will be able to in the future. (technologyreview.com)
  • Katrin Amunts
  • We need to understand the 'healthy' brain before we can take the next step and distinguish differences in people suffering from neurological or psychiatric disorders," explains Katrin Amunts. (fz-juelich.de)
  • Advances
  • This] shows how PTSD can affect the way we learn and our ability to recall information, so this new way of brain imaging advances our understanding of PTSD," said Dr. Hanli Liu, a bioengineering professor at UT Arlington. (photonics.com)
  • images
  • to automatically, and reliably, process a large number of brain images. (sfu.ca)
  • The encyclopedia also fully links the data to disease, for example, presenting side-by-side maps of healthy and diseased brains for direct comparisons, and offers data sets and fully annotated color images. (elsevier.com)
  • The molecules appeared on a screen as highly-rendered images of the communications systems of the brain. (reference.com)
  • Pointing to MRI images, he explains that the pain signaling goes to many places in the brain at once. (voanews.com)
  • Brain Maps provides scanned images of sub-micron resolution brain sections. (programmableweb.com)
  • These images are annotated and a database allows for querying and retrieval of data about brain structure and function. (programmableweb.com)
  • With over 300 articles and a media rich environment, this resource provides exhaustive coverage of the methods and systems involved in brain mapping, fully links the data to disease (presenting side by side maps of healthy and diseased brains for direct comparisons), and offers data sets and fully annotated color images. (wisepress.com)
  • assumption
  • Many functions also involve multiple parts of the brain, meaning that this type of claim is probably both unverifiable with the equipment used, and generally based on an incorrect assumption about how brain functions are divided. (wikipedia.org)
  • differences
  • Brain imaging from University of Colorado scientist Tor Wager shows differences between long term and sudden pain. (voanews.com)
  • cells
  • The population of the developing brain with cells, is a mass-migratory event that proceeds with algorithmic precision. (extremetech.com)
  • The result is mesmerizing: a brain model that you can swim through, zooming in or out to see the arrangement of cells and tissues. (technologyreview.com)
  • The complexity of the human brain and how cells interact and communicate with one another has been an ongoing puzzle to some of the greatest scientist in the world, notes CNN. (reference.com)
  • The current method for mapping interconnected brain cells involves the use of room-size microscopes known as transmission electron microscopes (TEMs). (innovations-report.com)
  • function
  • Accordingly, the brain correlates of vocalization in these disorders may both differ from each other and that of normal vocal function. (bioportfolio.com)
  • circuits
  • It may be that most brain functions will only be described correctly after being measured with much more fine-grained measurements that look not at large regions but instead at a very large number of tiny individual brain circuits. (wikipedia.org)
