The human brain and its curiosity has been a subject of mankind till the existence and in this, Scientists are hoping to further dig deep into the mysteries of human brain, just by finding unprecedented detail.
Now the researchers are better equip to solve the human mind capabilities, and hope to map the trillions of connections, between the brain cells known as synapses that allow chemical and electrical messages to flow and are vital for healthy human brain function.
The elaborate map will show how these vital connections are organised throughout the brain and in its different regions.
If that research will be successful, then the University of Edinburgh project will deepen the basic understanding of brain structure and its function, and it also shed light on different types of brain diseases and the behavioural conditions, scientists said.
One of the Lead researcher Professor Seth Grant said, “Unravelling the enormous complexity of human brain is still one of the great scientific challenges,”
He said, “In this research, we will chart the molecular architecture of human brain, and our maps will help to explain the basis of our thoughts, and the actions in healthy people, and also those with brain disorders.”
Researchers, who are based at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre, the Clinical Brain Sciences, have been awarded with a grant of 1.3 million pounds, by the Wellcome Trust for that work.
That new project is the continuity of their previous work, creating another such map called a synaptome for the mouse brain.
To act upon, the scientists used cutting edge techniques, such as molecular imaging and the artificial intelligence to look at the synapses across whole of the mouse brain.
Study showed that the mice bred to mirror aspects of schizophrenia and autism, that had different synaptome maps, and did not recall the information properly.
