This representation shows the connectivity of the 10,000 neurons and 30 million connections that make up a single neocortical column. (The different colors correspond to different levels of electrical activity.) Wow!

This computer model shows the connectivity of the neurons and 30 million connections that make up a single neocortical column (the basic building block of the cortex). The different colours correspond to different levels of electrical activity.

Human Cortical Neurons (Brain Cells) on Glial Cells (flat cells under the neurons)--showing interconnecting dendrites.

Researchers have discovered a number of unknown types of brain cells, including a nerve cell, in the brains of mice.

neurosciencestuff: Researchers turn one form of neuron into another in the brain A new finding by Harvard stem cell biologists turns one of the basics of neurobiology on its head – demonstrating that it is possible to turn one type of already differentiated neuron into another within the brain. The discovery by Paola Arlotta and Caroline Rouaux “tells you that maybe the brain is not as immutable as we always thought, because at least during an early window of time one can reprogram the…
