on the human brain Still surprising. A recent cartographer of this human body has discovered a a new brain region which I call Endestestiform core, this discovery was made by George Paxinos AO, professor of neuroscience in Australia (NeuRA).
Professor Pachinos assumed the existence of Endorestiform Nucleus 30 years ago, but has just seen it because of better coloring and image techniques. When he commented on this discovery, Professor Paxinos says he can compare to finding a new star.
"The area is intriguing because it appears to be absent in the rhesus monkey and other animals we have studied, "says Professor Paxinos, adding that" this region may be what makes people unique in addition to our brain size. "
The endoretized nucleus is located in the lower part of the brainstem, an area that integrates sensor and motor information to improve posture, balance, and fine motion.
"I can only guess its function, but given the part of the brain where it is found, it can take part in controlling fine motor"says Professor Paxinos.
Discovering the region can help researchers explore disease treatments such as Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease.
Neuroscientists who study neurological or psychiatric illnesses use teacher cards Paxinos to manage your work. The brain atlases of Professor Paxinos are considered the most accurate to identify brain structures and are also used in neurosurgery.
An increasingly detailed understanding of the architecture and connectivity of the nervous system has been central to most of the major findings in neuroscience over the past 100 years.
"Professor Paxinos' atlases show a detailed morphology and the relationships of the human brain and the spinal cord provide a critical framework for researchers to evaluate the hypotheses of synaptic function to treatments brain diseases"said Professor Peter Shofield, CEO of NeuRA.
"It is a great honor for us to continue with the legacy of Professor Paxinos' publication," said Natalie Farra, editor-in-chief of Elsevier. "His books are recognized worldwide for their experience and usefulness in mapping the brain and for their contribution to our understanding of the structure, function and brain development".
Professor Paxinos is the author of the most cited publication in neurology and other 52 detailed brain maps. The maps track the course for neurosurgery and neurology research, allowing the research, discovery and development of treatments for brain diseases and disorders.
