Scientists are making new efforts to pool their neuroimaging data. Currently, structural and functional data of approximately 3,000 people diagnosed with PTSD, acquired in many different labs around the globe, are being analyzed conjointly. Will this produce more valid results on alterations? in brain structure and brain function?
Mind-reading has long been the domain of science fiction writers. To date, neuroscience research is mostly still focused on localizing cognitive functions in the brain, rather than at understanding the algorithms behind them. This is the main reason why we know roughly where problem solving takes place in the brain, but not how it is done.
