Check out the BigBrain on Brett:

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIVING -

OK, so it’s not re­ally Brett’s brain from Pulp­Fic­tion. Meet BigBrain, re­leased to the world in June, a freely ac­ces­si­ble high-res­o­lu­tion 3D dig­i­tal at­las of the hu­man brain cre­ated by re­searchers at the Mon­treal Neu­ro­log­i­cal In­sti­tute and the Ger­man Forschungszen­trum Jülich from scans of mi­cro-thin brain slices. While BigBrain’s process is still be­ing re­fined, the cur­rent at­las gives much greater insight into the struc­ture and work­ings of the brain. In the near fu­ture, it could even al­low re­searchers to study brain func­tions and dis­or­ders at a molec­u­lar level.
