This study created and tested a database of adult, age-specific MRI brain and head templates. The participants included healthy adults from 20 through 89 years of age. The templates were done in five-year, year, and multi-year intervals from 20 through 89 years, and consist of average T1W for the head and brain, and segmenting priors for gray matter GMwhite matter WMand cerebrospinal fluid CSF.
Saxe, a cognitive scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, went headfirst with him: lying uncomfortably on her stomach, her face near his diaper, she stroked and soothed him as the three-tesla magnet whirred around them. Arthur, unfazed, promptly fell asleep. But her due date in September put an impetus on getting everything ready.
An adult fruit-fly brain in all its glory. Fruit flies Drosophila melanogaster display a suite of complex behaviours, including courtship dances and learning 1. But understanding the neural networks that drive these behaviours remains a challenge. A high-speed camera captured high-resolution pictures of each slice — a process never used before — generating roughly 21 million images that the team stitched together using custom computer software.
Whole-brain recordings give us a global perspective of the brain in action. In this study, we describe a method using light field microscopy to record near-whole brain calcium and voltage activity at high speed in behaving adult flies. We first obtained global activity maps for various stimuli and behaviors.

Michael Windle at Emory University and colleagues from other institutions performed magnetic resonance imaging of the brains of year-old African Americans. The young men and women had participated in a study of Strong African American Familiesa program designed to reduce the impact of childhood poverty on rural African Americans. During the study, they had reported their substance use to researchers annually from age 11 to
The observation that the human brain churns out new neurons throughout life is one of the biggest neuroscience discoveries of the past 20 years. In nonhuman animals the continued production of new neurons has been linked to improved learning and memory, and possibly even mood regulation. But new findings in humans, reported online in Nature on Wednesday, pump the brakes on this idea.
The human brain is the central organ of the human nervous systemand with the spinal cord makes up the central nervous system. The brain consists of the cerebrumthe brainstem and the cerebellum. It controls most of the activities of the bodyprocessing, integrating, and coordinating the information it receives from the sense organsand making decisions as to the instructions sent to the rest of the body.
