How the Brain is Stimulated
Forget computers, the human brain is the most complex machine that has ever existed, at least in the history of our planet. So much of it is still largely a mystery to neuroscientists.
Fascination with how our brains work has grown in recent years, so much so that last year the Obama administration proposed the Brain Activity Map Project, a bold research initiative intended to map the activity of every neuron in the human brain.
As you will see in the infographic below, that’s a lot of mapping. But how does that complex instrument of ours relate to the day-to-day stimuli that we encounter? Glad you asked. Here’s just a taste of how the brain interacts with environmental stimuli.
