One Hundred Years of Brain Images

Cajal Purkinje Drawing
Mo Costandi, who runs the excellent Neurophilosophy blog, has a wonderful piece over at MIT’s Technology Review, Time Travel through the Brain. The article gives us ten images that represent how our ability to see and visualize what our brains do, with accompanying commentary on each image. There is also a minute-long video on the right hand side which is also worthy viewing – so please look for that too.

I’ve included the first and tenth images here, but for more, go over to Time Travel through the Brain.
