This discovery if a hidden region on the human brain by scientist could help in the search for treatments that could cure brain diseases such as motor neuron disease.
This region that was discovered and given the name of the endorestiform nucleus is located near the junction of the brain and the spinal cord and was identified by a professor from the neuroscience research in Australia who goes by the name of professor George Paxinos.
This new region has been given the name of the endorestiform nucleus. According to professor Paxinos, he had suspected of the existence of the area for a couple of years that is for decades, but his research did not pull through until now that the staining and imaging techniques had become advanced enough to enable the visualization of the parts that could not be seen.
He likens the discovery as similar to the discovering the existence of a new star. The most exciting thing about the invention of this new region is that it has not been found in the study of other primates as well as animals and it is what makes the human beings unique besides the size of our brain which is much more significant as compared to other animals.
This new region by the name of endorestiform nucleus lies within the inferior cerebellar peduncle, that is a part of the brain that integrates sensory as well as motor information and refined posture, fine, motor, movements as well as balance.
Over a century now, the significant discoveries in the field of neuroscience have been made possible by a clear understanding of the brain architecture. this brain atlas has been used by scientists to explore as well as identify the brain structures, as well as treatments that might be potential to Various brain disorders as well as diseases.in addition to that these atlases, are used as a guide in neurosurgery
The detailed information of this latest discovery can be found in the most recent book if Paxinos that is called the human brainstem cytoarchitecture, chemotecture, myeloarchitecture.
