  1. It needs to be said again, it is simply beautiful. My aim after med school is going into neurology, this is a booooost!

  2. Microcosm of the universe.

    Without knowing much of anything I will say that we're always trying to find borders and areas to label this or that in everything. When it comes to the brain I think that approach is very dangerous.

  3. I'm a little freaked out that reality is created by my brain but my brain is also in reality.

  4. Mapping the brain and better understanding can have important implications for our understanding of dementia as well as chronic pain and stroke rehabilitation, to name a few.

  5. Huh? Why was my reply deleted from here? Youtube is weird. I can't even see my reply anymore.

    Edit: Hi! It came back! Good.

  6. So there's an Area 55b. Then there must also be an Area 51, I wonder what's there? Knowledge you are not supposed to have? Alien ideas? 😛

  7. Scientists equate the brain with the mind (they even often say “the brain is the mind”!). They forget that the brain is another organ in the body that the mind is aware of, just the way the mind is aware of anything else in the world and the universe.

  8. This map only applies to McMerican brains. The brains of we in Great (<<hint) Britain only have one large area, devoted to containing our superior endowment of smugness.

  9. what a fucking dumb video, there can be no aggregate, mean or average brain, coz brodman areas distribution size and shape is what makes some very rare people paganini, leonardo da vinci and others en mass like el trumpo and killary. and there is no set number of that areas, some geniuses had unique areas like they were cerebrally new species according to the postmortum research. American neurologists are dumb as fuck. plus encepholagraphy can in no way determine borders of areas sheesh.

  10. Not clear if they are selling apples or gadgets. Science meeting the socialite intellectual level.

  11. I do not understand the logic behind simply mapping the organ brain. Even though scientists have fully worked out the brain-wiring diagram of a tiny worm (Caenorhabditis elegans), they do not understand how to use this information to get an idea of how its brain/mind works. Considering brain plasticity, I think it is best to map/chart what mind states and mind-related activities (such as engaging in games, ruminating and worrying, participating in mindfulness meditation, etc.) bring about structural changes in neurons and their connections. This information can then be useful for interventions, etc., and can be a more worthwhile endeavor than to simply find out which part of the brain is connected/associated with which other parts.

  12. I think that classifying different discrete regions of the brain is a foolhardy exercise, except for maybe surgeons. If you're really interested in how a brain works, you aught to understand the dynamics of individual neurons.
