Scientists: the human brain unique
People say, "our brains work differently, but nevertheless they are unique," and at this stage of the tests, a team of scientists from the University Carnegie Mellon has proven that it is literally so. The group has developed a way to remove the "mold or imprint" of the human brain using MRI. Scientists have discovered that structural connections in the brain is so unique that can be used for identification – in the same way as fingerprints. According to scientific work that scholars publish in PLOS, the researchers obtained the information from the brain 699 subjects through an MRI.
The researchers then calculated the distribution of water molecules on the slice of the MRI scan. What the researchers found, showed that each actor has a unique local distribution of water molecules is practically possible to use in any field. You can read the imprint of the brain in those places where you use any of the known scanners of the identification.
Even a map of the distribution of water among twins are similar only 12%. To verify the results, the researchers conducted 17 000 identification tests and found that can detect any subject with 100% accuracy, know if the pre-scan of his brain.
That`s not all, as they say in advertising. The team also found out in passing that the experience of man, his behavior in various stressful situations, a set of illnesses, experiencing poverty, depression, fundamentally influenced by the structure of the brain.
Scientists can use this discovery to determine the negative factors in the environment that affect the brains of people. Although the new method can be used to identify, researchers have so far mainly focused on its medical applications.
Here is what Timothy Werstine, one of the scientists from Carnegie Mellon:
"This confirms the fact that in neuroscience models the brain`s connections are unique to each person. This means that the experience is reflected physically in the brain. Thus, we can explore the exchange of experience, patients can also explore the impact of poverty on the brain of the people.“
