There has been more discovered about the brain in the past 20 years than ever before. Now a new scan shows over 100 areas previously unknown. This research is fascinating in the context of organisational behaviour and leadership. The more we can understand ourselves and the impact we have on our colleagues and the culture which we help to create, the better choices are made and achievements gained on an individual, team and organisational level.
In a milestone in neuroscience, researchers published a spectacular new map of the brain, detailing nearly 100 previously unknown regions — an unprecedented glimpse into the machinery of the human mind.Scientists will rely on this guide as they attempt to understand virtually every aspect of the brain, from how it develops in children and ages over decades, to how it can be corrupted by diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.“It’s a step towards understanding why we’re we,” said David Kleinfeld, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Diego, who was not involved in the research.Scientists created the map with advanced scanners and computers running artificial intelligence programs that “learned” to identify the brain’s hidden regions from vast amounts of data collected from hundreds of test subjects, a far more sophisticated and broader effort than had been previously attempted.
