On human brain It's still surprising. Recently, a cartographer from this human organ has discovered new brain region what I call it Best identical core, this discovery was made by George Paxinos AO, a professor of Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA).
Professor Paxinos suspected of having Endorestiform Nucleus 30 years ago, but only now he is able to see it because of better coloring and image techniques. When commenting on this discovery, the professor Paxinos says it can be compared to finding a new star.
"On region is intriguing because it appears to be absent in the rhesus monkey and other animals we have studied, "Professor Passinos said, adding that" this region can be what makes people unique except the size of the brain. "
The endosterior core is located within the inferior cerebellar peduncle, an area that integrates sensory and motor information to improve our posture, balance and fine motor movements.
"I can only hit its function, but given the part of the brain where it is found, it can be involved in controlling nice motorsays Professor Pasinos.
The discovery of the region can help researchers to explore drugs for diseases such as Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease.
Neurologists who investigate neurological or psychiatric illnesses use the teacher's maps Paxinos to guide you to work. Professor Paxinos's cerebral atlases are considered the most accurate for the identification of brain structures and are also used in neurosurgery.
A more complete understanding of architecture and the connection of the nervous system is central to most of the greatest discoveries in neurology in the past 100 years.
"The passes of Professor Passinos show the detailed morphology and connections of human brain and the spinal cord provide a critical framework for researchers to assess the hypothesis of the synaptic treatment function for brain diseases"said Professor Peter Schofield, executive director of NeuRA.
"It's truly an honor for Elsevier to continue with the legacy of Professor Paxinos's publication with us," said Nataly Farah, Elsevier's editor-in-chief. "His books are recognized throughout the world for their experience and usefulness in mapping the brain, and for their contribution to our understanding of the structure, function and development of the brain"
Professor Paxinos is the author of the most-cited publication in neuroscience and other 52 detailed maps of the brain. Maps follow a research course in the field of neurosurgery and neurology, enabling research, detection and development of treatments for diseases and brain disorders.
