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: H.M. dies at 82

Henry Gustav Molaison, known to the science community as H.M. passed away today (December 4th, 2008) due to respiratory failure. H.M. will forever be remembered for his immeasurable contribution to our understanding of the brain and memory. On september 5, 1953 H.M. underwent medial temporal lobe surgery for the treatment of intractable epilepsy. In the following months H.M.'s seizures resolved, but curiously he was left with anterograde amnesia; leaving unable to form new long-term memories. In the following years, up until this past week scientist have continuously studied H.M. attempting to better understand how memories are formed and retrieved. Specifically, work with H.M. has helped us understand the brain's declarative versus working memory systems. Even more importantly, H.M. will be remembered for his kindness and wiliness to act as a research subject for the advancement of science.
