We don’t really know much about our most important organ, but now scientists have made a step forward in our own self discovery by creating the first 3D map of the brain. Professor Van Wedeen at Harvard, who specializes in radiology, has mapped the ‘connectome’ - a circuit diagram of all the neurons in the brain.

This 3D map of the brain will help to further research into everything from the imagination, language and mental illness. Now that is definitely something to think about. The mapping process has yet to be tried on the human brain; so far only owl monkies, rabbits and mice brains have been mapped.
