the – human brain It is still surprising. Recently, a cartographer & # 39; that a human body discovered new region of the brain to call nucleus endestestiformThis discovery was made by George PAXINOS AO, professor & # 39; Neuroscience Research Australia (Neur).
The PAXINOS Professor suspected the existence of Nucleus Endorestiformu 30 years ago, but now he could only & # 39; & # 39 watched because techniques; stains and better images. Commenting on this discovery, the professor PAXINOS says it can & # 39; comparable & # 39; finding & # 39; new star.
"The – region is intriguing because it seems to be absent in rhesus monkeys and in & # 39; other animals we studied ", said PAXINOS Professor, adding that" this region can & # 39; is what makes humans unique together with our brain size ".
The endorestiform nucleus located in the lower Cerebellar peduncles, an area that integrates sensory information and motor to refine posture, balance and motor movements.
"I & # 39; only urge its function, but because of the part of the brain where found, can & # 39; be involved in controlling brain motor"Says Professor PAXINOS.
The discovery of the region can & # 39; help researchers explore the cure for such diseases Foot & # 39; Parkinson and of motor neuron disease.
Newrocientists investigating neurological or psychiatric disorders using the teacher maps PAXINOS to guide your work. The cerebral atlas Professor PAXINOS are considered the most accurate identification of & # 39; the brain structures and are also used in neurosurgery.
increasingly detailed understanding & # 39; architecture and nervous system connectivity was central to most of & # 39; major discoveries in newroxien over the past 100 years.
"The – atlas – Professor PAXINOS show detailed morphology and – connections – human brain and provide critical backbone framework for researchers to evaluate hypotheses & # 39; synaptic function for treatments for brain diseases"Said Professor Peter Schofield, executive director & # 39; Neur.
"It's really an honor to continue the legacy of Elsevier publishing Professor PAXINOS us", said Natalie Farra, the chief editor of & # 39; Elsevier. "His books are recognized worldwide for their experience and utility for mapping the brain, and their contributions to our understanding of the structure, function and development of mind"
The PAXINOS Professor is the author of the publication most mentioned in neuroscience and 52 highly detailed maps of the brain. The maps trace the course in research & # 39; newkureġerija and neuroscience, enabling the exploration, discovery and development of & # 39; treatments for diseases and brain disorders.
