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.

At left: The Einstein's Brain Project

For the past 8 years Alan Dunning, Dr. Morley Hollenberg and Paul Woodrow, of the art and science collaboration, "the Einstein's Brain Project," have been investigating ideas about consciousness through immersive and mixed virtual reality. The project has brought together artists, scientists, technologists and others in a transdisciplinary space tp develop new ways of representing and understanding the technologized body.The shapes of thought is a work that visualizes EEG and other bioelectrical signals as three-dimensional forms. The forms are generated by monitoring the EEG of a participant recalling a traumatic event and using the numbers to change simple primitives to complex meshes. Each vertext on a primitive is assigned a point in space and each is pushed and pulled by the incoming EEG data. Over very long periods of time - more than 12 hourse in some cases - a smooth sphere or cube becomes a heavily fissured, bumpy and spiked object - a recent geological record of the EEG pattern generated by the participant. At prearranged intervals, the form is saved into a database to allow the event path to be retraced in the future.
