How spontaneous brain activity keeps you alive - Nathan S. Jacobs

How spontaneous brain activity keeps you alive - Nathan S. Jacobs | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
The wheels in your brain are constantly turning, even when you're asleep or not paying attention. In fact, most of your brain’s activities are ones you’d never be aware of … unless they suddenly stopped. Nathan S. Jacobs takes us inside the always active, surprisingly spontaneous brain.

New Insight into How the Brain Regulates Its Blood Flow

New Insight into How the Brain Regulates Its Blood Flow | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
Researchers report they have identified a new component of the biological mechanism which controls blood flow in the brain.

 

"The blush of the brain. Red hue shows the increase in the amount of blood in the brain (total hemoglobin concentration) in response to stimulation. This response extends up along surface arteries in a wave of dilation that travels over a millimeter in less than half a second. This ‘brain blush’ provides the contrast seen in fMRI images, and is essential for normal brain function. The green vessel crossing the responding region is a draining vein. Veins exhibit very little diameter change in response to normal stimulation, acting as passive drains of increased blood flow. Credit Elizabeth Hillman"
