Scientists made the largest map ever of the brain—and it could change the way we treat diseases

The biological material that comprises our brains isn’t easily explored. Understanding that gray matter is rife with challenges that even modern science, which now provides the means to tinker with the tiniest components of our biology through gene-editing, has had some difficulty with. But a consortium of scientists has now developed the most comprehensive map to date—a brain atlas—to better understand brain cells, hoping to help fuel the next era of medicines that can treat conditions like dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more.
