This page is intended to create model of biological human brain based on open research results across the world. Related findings are structured by other research themes.

Overall Brain

Brain Areas

Approach of defining areas:

  • make area names unique to avoid misunderstanding
  • pay specific attention to vision, audition and proprioception
  • use visual and auditory senses to track both unimodal and polymodal paths
  • do not create thalamus area to avoid mixing unrelated paths, assign thalamus nuclei to other areas
  • do not create limbic area to avoid mixing unrelated functions, assign limbic components to other areas
  • take into account all subcortical nuclei
  • all areas mapped by Brodmann placed in cortical category
  • consider only single left hemisphere, placing unique right hemisphere components into corresponding cuircuits
