It Took 12 Years To Completely Map a Baby Fruit Fly’s Brain
With 3,016 neurons and 58,000 neural connections, this map of a fruit fly larva brain is the most impressive piece of neurological cartography to date.
Scientists Used Over 100,000 MRIs to Map The Human Brain Across Our Entire Lifetime
We've now got a more complete picture than ever before of how the brain grows, evolves, and shrinks over our lives - all thanks to a complex database combining 123,984 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans taken from 101,457 individuals.
Inserting Algae Into Tadpoles Can Bring Their Brains Back Online
The human brain is a complex and amazing organ that takes up 20 percent of the body's oxygen, despite making up only 2 percent of our bodies. This means that the human brain cannot be without oxygen for more than five minutes before irreversible damage occurs such as in the case of a stroke.
Researchers Found a Way to Send Tiny Robots Into Mouse Brains
In a mind-bending development, a team of researchers in China have managed to treat brain tumors in mice by delivering drugs to the tissues using microscopic robots. The robots jumped from the mice's bloodstreams into their brains by being coated in E.
