The benefits of brain mapping

2013 Nature  
Two huge projects have the potential to revolutionize neuroscience, as long as they don't drain money from other work and are monitored to keep them on target.  ...  The first steps will be to develop technologies to map the brain in unprecedented detail, in terms of activity and anatomy -and to develop theoretical neuroscience to make sense of it.  ...  Reliable and detailed reference maps of the brain are likely to ground the research in reality, attracting industry back. There is also a high-stakes cultural issue.  ...

Extracting representations of cognition across neuroimaging studies improves brain decoding

Arthur Mensch, Julien Mairal, Bertrand Thirion, Gaël Varoquaux
2021 PLoS Computational Biology  
We introduce a new methodology to analyze brain responses across tasks without a joint model of the psychological processes.  ...  Cognitive brain imaging is accumulating datasets about the neural substrate of many different mental processes. Yet, most studies are based on few subjects and have low statistical power.  ...  Beyond quantitative benefits -the gain in prediction accuracy-the models also brings qualitative benefits, facilitating the interpretation of decoding maps (Fig 6 ).  ...
