Brain Primers

Where is the occipital lobe? How many synapses are in the human brain? How do biomarkers help clinicians predict disease outcomes?

For the answers to these questions and many more, check out the Dana Foundation’s brain-related primers. Started this year, the primers are published quarterly and offer a basic overview of a particular brain topic. So far we’ve looked at biomarkers, the synapse, neuroanatomy, and brain receptors. Coming next: what goes on in the brain during a stroke.
