brain map 180 areas

“Imagine that the first map you ever saw of the United States was simply a rough outline of the country’s borders with only about half the state boundaries penciled in.

That’s essentially the type of diagram that scientists have been using as a map of the human brain for more than 100 years.

Fortunately, that’s about to change.

By combining data from a handful of imaging techniques, an international coalition of researchers has created one of the most precise maps of the human brain ever seen. The new map, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, divides the brain up into 180 unique brain regions, of which 97 have never been identified before.”
