The Human Connectome Project (HCP) is a project to construct a map of the complete structural and functional neural connections in vivo within and across individuals. The HCP represents the first large-scale attempt to collect and share data of a scope and detail sufficient to begin the process of addressing deeply fundamental questions about human connectional anatomy and variation
"The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands."
Scientists made an AI that can read minds Whether its using AI to help organize a Lego collection or relying on an algorithm to protect our cities deep learning neural networks seemingly become more impressive and complex each day. Now however some scientists are pushing the capabilities of these algorithms to a whole new level - theyre trying to use them to read minds. By reverse-engineering signals sent by the brain researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have been working on an AI that…
Project to map human brain from womb to birth releases stunning images. 3D reconstruction of the cortical surface and calculated features from a seven-month, eight-month and nine-month baby brain MRI. From top to bottom: white matter surface, cortical surface, inflated surface, parcellation into different structures, sulcal depth maps, mean curvature, cortical thickness and T1/T2 myelin maps.
