The first paper that I would like to point out to the Neuropenews readers has been published on the prestigious PNAS (Tang-Schomer et al; Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 10.1073/pnas.1324214111.(2014), and it is reporting about a model of the six-layer human cortical brain tissue. Biological models as well as computer models (see Lancet Neurology, August 2014) look like very “hot spots” in the neuroscience panorama.
