Neuroscientists Are Really Upset About Major Neuroscience Projects

University of California, Berkeley, researchers have shown that chronic stress generates long-term changes in the brain that may explain why people suffering chronic stress are prone to mental problems such as anxiety and mood disorders later in life. ...

Portraits of the Mind

A diffusion MRI image of a patient who has suffered a stroke in the thalamus. This has resulted in major disruptions to certain axon tracts, some of which are visible at the bottom of the figure

Connecting the dots: Water diffusion MRI reveals plasticity networks in remote nonstimulated brain regions

Textured Brain by Alfred Anwander and Robin M. Heidemann. The image was created through a technique called diffusion MRI, a process where the spread of water molecules through neural tissue can be measured while revealing the amazing number of connections in the brain. via geekosystem #Brain_Art #Alfred_Anwander #Robin_M_Heidemann
