The Human Brain Gets a New Map

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of writing about the Paul Allen Institute for Brain Science. At the time, the Institute was just beginning a fairly epic undertaking - constructing a precise map of gene expression for the entire human brain.

It's a good thing you didn't mix up the pictures between this article and the one on organic foods. ;-)

Seriously, it's quite interesting. Thanks!

And if the butchers in 10 years get an other opinion of human brain's map?
However, science goes further and also changes always...
Thanks Angle

Good info but don't like the sound of them doing one for mice as a doubt they would have used donated dead mice. But the human map sounds great.

This most mysterious and intriguing of our organs will probably always mystify us.
