New brain map identifies 97 previously unknown regions

By Susan Scutti, CNN - July 20, 2016

A new 21st century map of the human brain contains 180 distinct areas in each hemisphere, including 97 previously undiscovered territories, research published Wednesday in the journal Nature revealed.

It's not quite Google Maps, but the new optic still provides the most detailed understanding of the cerebral cortex to date, based on the freshest data from the latest technologies. . . .

[Science] New Map Of The Brain Identifies 97 Previously Unknown Areas - And are they gorgeous.

By Bahar Gholipour, Senior Writer, Huffington Post - 07/20/2016

If you ask a neuroscientist to show you a map of the brain, chances are they’ll pick one that’s more than a century old. . . .

. . . the map reveals 97 previously unknown areas of the brain’s surface (the cortex), in addition to 83 areas that were described before.

Unlike Brodmann’s and other brain maps built using just one property (how the cells looked under a microscope, for example),

the new atlas is made by combining several types of data that capture multiple properties of these brain areas: their anatomy, their function and the connections between them. . . .

. . . For example, an area that may look indistinguishable from its neighbor under the microscope or on MRI scans may light up on fMRI scans that measure brain activation during a specific mental task and thus stand out as a distinct region. . . .

It seems too often the medical community is far, far behind on new info because to keep current doctors would almost have to be at a conference every week - especially if they are a specialist.

Guess "neurological circuits" was too long for the headline but whatever you call it, it's way cool, indeed.

Article, 1:30 video & photos

Shifts in the music about the 1:00 mark, for those with hyperacusis, keep volume low.
