      The brain scans of connections

      The image on the left shows a dissection of a human brain, performed by Ludwig and Klingler from post mortem tissue. The dissection reveals major anatomical features of the brain, but does not reveal the brain’s connections. Shown on the right is a complete map of the major anatomical connections linking distinct regions of the cerebral cortex. The map was generated by Hagmann in 2008 from magnetic resonance imaging data acquired from a living person. In its entirety, the brain consists of 10^11 neurons and 10^15 synaptic links, and the total wiring of the brain is estimated to span thousands of miles. The map in the middle shows the human connectome by Sporns generated using network tools. Network analysis revealed robust small-world attributes, the existence of multiple modules interlinked by hub regions, and a structural core comprised of a set of brain regions that are highly interconnected. As multiple data sets from multiple participants were analyzed, it became clear that individual connectomes display unique structural features that might explain differences in cognition and behavior.

    As Little Girls and Boys Grow, They Think Alike by Avery Johnson: By measuring the thickness of the brain's cortex and how it changes over time, scientists have found that boys' and girls' brains, on average, differ significantly at age 9. But by the time the participants reached age 22, the brains of the two sexes grew more alike in many areas critical for learning. These images are combined male/female brains. White shows areas of concordance. #Gender_Development #Brain #WSJ #Avery_Johnson
