The connectome is also a foundation for understanding far more complex nervous systems like our own.
While still uncertain, previous research suggests the effect may last 5 hours or more after stimulation.
The study found that animals, humans included, can engage in acts of simulating the minds of others.
So far, scientists had not considered the possibility that humans were magnetically-sensitive beings.
The researchers also ran placebo studies on the subjects to ensure it wasn’t a psychosomatic effect.
Women in Science: Suhita Nadkarni on studying the brain, making the shift from Physics to Neurobiology
Suhita Nadkarni started off as a physicist, but she soon learnt the value of being an insider — using neuroscience rather than physics to understand the brain
The study offers evidence of how our brain can record spatial information from experience over time.
Women in Science: Neurobiologist Pinky Kain studies how fruit flies make feeding decisions and process taste
Dr Pinky Kain studies fruit flies to answer how ‘taste’ is processed by our brain
Our brain has distinct genetic genes clusters responsible for the effects of depression and worry.
Neurobiologist Dr Pinky Kain Sharma studies the fruit fly (Drosophila) to answer questions like how information about taste is conveyed to the brain | #WomenInScience | #FirstCulture
Suhita Nadkarni represents the new crop of young Indian interdisciplinary scientists who refuse to suffer through the slow and bureaucratic approach to science that has been the norm in India
