The NIH as part of its Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies [BRAIN] Initiative, the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network, or BICAN, recently announced to “map 200 billion cells in the human brain by type and function as well as create an atlas of the primate brain.”
Part of the goal is that “to understand how the brain works mechanically [we] must understand the basic cell types that make up the neural circuitry and how they are wired together to give rise to function and understand the causes of neuropsychiatric diseases.
The project is an invigorating leap forward towards new answers about the brain, a complex organ. However, there is no shortage of studies in cellular and molecular neuroscience in research laboratories around the world. Advances in neuroscience have mostly focused on cells and molecules.
There would be a lot to learn from BICAN, but it may not disclose enough of the brain history needed “to understand the causes of neuropsychiatric diseases.”
In any serious mental illness, there is a problem with thoughts. In any state of good mental health, there are properties of thought that structure the tranquility felt.
The properties of thought define all experiences of neuropsychiatric diseases, going beyond the “function” of neurons, to their construction or construction. There are things that people generally avoid against social, cultural, or economic norms, because thinking goes to places where the consequences are known, to not. But there are people with neuropsychiatric illnesses, without the ability for their thoughts to go out there to find out, so they break.
In general, seeing, hearing or touching something, at different times, can cause anxiety, fear, trauma, depression, joy, laughter, etc. All that is expressed is that the senses become thought versions, these thought versions become priority [full action and attention] and head to destinations to get anyone of them to support.
It is the function of thinking and remembering experiences that are the poles of mental health and disease. People often say dopamine hit, but no one ever experiences dopamine, serotonin or other brain molecules, that’s what they become for the experience – through memory, which makes this determination.
It is possible to desire something badly, or say to have a dopamine secretion, but the fear of the consequences, or the exposure if done at the time, would prevent it from happening. This makes dopamine a subordinate of the overall construction or construction of memory.
Thought can acquire cravings by going to the craving store. Then, depending on what the thought went before or rebounds, subsequently – an element [rep] binds to cravings: it can be food, drink, medicine, travel, etc. There are other cases where the thought does not go to the store of cravings, so when the item is seen, heard, smelled, touched or tasted, it is not wanted.
What is pressing in brain science and related fields are the rules of thought transport in the brain and how they acquire the properties that determine experiences.
This is where virtual reality can step in, displaying or showing what neuroimaging cannot. The functionality could be subsumed with games or other VR apps.
Exploring the brain cell atlas for specific functions can reveal some of their actions. When this part is used to develop drugs, there would be various side effects, because a cell, a group or molecules, are different sets of constructs, so inhibit or induce help, then is not.
