Researchers create most detailed, 3-D rendering of key region of mammal lung
Amidst the extraordinarily dense network of pathways in a mammal lung is a common destination. There, any road leads to a cul-de-sac of sorts called the pulmonary acinus. This place looks like a bunch of grapes attached to a stem (acinus means "berry" in Latin).

This digitized image made from a screen shot of a new iPad app, provided Sept. 24, 2012 by the National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago, shows an image of brain tissue from renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein. The new application to be released Tuesday, Sept. 25 will allow users to see Einstein's brain as if they were looking through a microscope. The application promises to make detailed images of his brain more accessible to scientists than ever before. Teachers, students and

The tiniest, most complicated set of instructions just got a little easier to read, thanks to a giant scientific project called ENCODE. Cool!

Researchers say experiencing strong emotions synchronizes brain activity across individuals

Study shows that seeing emotions expressed by one person triggers the same emotions and brain activity in the viewer. I wonder if one reason some men are uncomfortable w/ women's emotional expressions is b/c it brings up the same feelings in them. From an early age men get such negative feedback for showing emotion, esp. crying, that i have to wonder if what they are really uncomfortable with in such a situation is having the feelings triggered b/c of the energy it then takes to suppress them.
Synchronized brains: Feeling strong emotions makes people's brains 'tick together'

Study shows human emotions are contagious.
Remember Phineas Gage from High School Science Class? He was famous for surviving a horrific accident after he was impaled with a steel rod, but was left with a drastically changed personality. Scientists have now digitally mapped out his brain & identified the white matter responsible for his personality change.

Anyone familiar with neuroscience will be familiar with the incredible case of Phineas Gage, the railroad worker who had a metre-long iron rod propelled straight through his head at high speed in an explosion. Gage famously survived this horrific accident, but underwent dramatic personality changes afterwards. Now, neuroscientists from the University of California, Los Angeles have produced Gage's connectome - a detailed wiring diagram of his brain, showing how its long-range connections.

DSI image of 3D wiring in a monkey brain. “Far from being just a tangle of wires, the brain's connections turn out to be more like ribbon cables — folding 2D sheets of parallel neuronal fibers that cross paths at right angles, like the warp and weft of a fabric,” explained Van Wedeen, M.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital.
