Dedicated to the communication of news, science, and information of interest to the brain mapping community, and to sharing and promoting the science of brain mapping.
  The purpose and goal of brain mapping is to advance the understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the human brain. Scientists in this field seek to gain knowledge of the physical processes that underlie human sensation, attention awareness and cognition. These results are immediately applicable to surgical intervention, to the design of medical interventions and to the treatment of psychological and psychiatric disorders.

An ink drawing form "Glia and Muscle Sculpt Neuromuscular Arbors by Engulfing Destabilized Synaptic Boutons and Shed Presynaptic Debris", which appeared in PLoS Biology (see Fuentes-Medel et al., e1000184) showing that synaptic growth at the neuromuscular junction entails substantial shedding of membranes, which are removed through a collaboration between muscles and glial cells.
