The development of the brain in 3D is evolutionary providing insight into neuroscience and an adept understanding of the brain. The impacts are to be determined using this science.
The LA Times reported, “The BigBrain atlas, produced after a five-year effort, has created a three-dimensional virtual brain that not only maps the organ’s anatomy in unprecedented detail but also allows researchers to see how the invisible connections between cells produce the complex behaviors that make us human.”
BBC states, “The reconstruction shows the brain’s anatomy in microscopic detail, enabling researchers to see features smaller than a strand of hair.”
The development of technology is delivering on a new precipice that can give insights into nuero dynamics that potentially can address brain diseases and congenital effects.
