      A detailed new map lays out the landscape of the cerebral cortex -- the outermost layer of the brain and the dominant structure involved in distinctly human functions such as language, tool use and abstract thinking. The map will accelerate progress in the study of brain diseases, as well as help to elucidate what makes us unique as a species.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Myofascial crap Bruxism, a jackhammer, stress who knows
      Although not Tinnitus specific, its good we are uncovering more about our brains.

      A new brain map, based on multiple scans of more than 400 individuals, has carved the "cortex" into 180 different compartments - 97 of which are new.

      This should be a big step forward in understanding the inside of our heads and could in-turn assists with Tinnitus research as well as all of neuroscience.
