Plush toy, or Science? White matter connections in the human brain are imaged using diffusion MRI. This “connectome” is output from a 2008 study by Gigandet et al attempting to determine statistical confidence in mapping neural connectivity.

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy so it needs a lot of blood flow to keep it supplied with nutrients. Even knowing that, the density of the neurons here amazes me--they look almost the size of the brain itself!

Scientists at Harvard have developed a scanner which has built the first 3D map of the #brain. The team has logged more than 100 billon neurons and nerve cells, allowing us to see the complex inside workings of the brain for the first time.

Land of dreams: Harvard scientists map most complicated terrain in the universe - the inside of the brain

BBC News - Scans reveal intricate brain wiring: Scientists are set to release the first batch of data from a project designed to create the first map of the human brain.    The project could help shed light on why some people are naturally scientific, musical or artistic.

First Micro-Structure Atlas of the Human Brain Completed - A European team of scientists have built the first atlas of white-matter microstructure in the human brain. The project’s final results have the potential to change the face of neuroscience and medicine over the coming decade. courtesy of Dr Cyril Poupon, NeuroSpin Paris

Right brain myth de-bunked.

‘Creative right brain’ myth debunked. Yet another brain myth bites the dust, joining “we only use 10 percent of our brain,” and other pseudoscience nonsense that tries to cram people in nice neat boxes.
