Relationship between microbes and human race evaluated in new research

A research paper published in the journal Science clearly shows evolution has played a larger role than previously considered. According to researchers, some of the bacteria in our guts have been passed down more than millions of years, before the time we were humans.

100 New Regions Identified in Updated Brain Map

Human brain is carved up into invisible territories and each territory is specialized having different groups of neurons, some of which become active when we read, others when we recognize faces and yet others when we raise our hands.

But in a latest development that many experts have been dubbing as a milestone in neuroscience, researchers have published a spectacular new map of the brain, which highlights in detail nearly 100 previously unknown regions of the human mind.
