Human Brain Mapping

Human Brain Mapping

The following is a list of topics related to brain mapping, and major brain mapping research projects (listed below). Coverage is intended to be broad and comprehensive, and adequately cover the entire brain mapping field. Topics included are in rough proportion to their generally accepted overall importance to the human brain structure and function. It is not intended to be recursively exhaustive in every possible direction but to give an overview of what areas of knowledge may be impacted by the large new bran mapping research initiatives.

While the emphasis here is on physical brain structure, functional aspects are also included. Mind concepts (as in mind vs. body), and cognitive and behavioral aspects, are introduced where they have at least a fairly direct connection to physical aspects of the brain, neurons, spinal cord, nerve networks, neurotransmitters, etc.

Topics are roughly clustered as shown in the table of contents. Inside each cluster specific Wikipedia articles are listed, or topics are cross referenced to article sub sections where they are discussed. Brief annotations are given where the article's contents may not be immediately apparent to many readers.

Famous quotes containing the words human and/or brain:

    The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    Knowledge of Rome must be physical, sweated into the system, worked up into the brain through the thinning shoe-leather.... When it comes to knowing, the senses are more honest than the intelligence. Nothing is more real than the first wall you lean up against sobbing with exhaustion.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)
