A Preliminary Study of the Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms of the Brain
Drawing a map of the macaque's neural connections will help map the human brain, as the two are very similar. From Drosophila melanogaster, to zebrafish, mice, and macaques, humans have achieved remarkable results in the mapping of whole brain mesosco...
The neuroscience research team of the Nanyang Academy of Sciences in Singapore collaborated with the brain science and technology teams of relevant research institutions have made progress in the role of visual memory on brain nerves in the early stage. In this study, macaque were used as research objects, and behavioral experiments and functional NMR techniques were used to explore the memory strength, behavioral performance, and visual cortex decoding mechanism of different contents of visual memory, which provides valuable imaging basis for the characterization of visual memory in the brain.
The establishment of these data lays the foundation for realizing the preliminary research of the cognitive and neural mechanisms of the brain in the next step. The research was supported by the Nanyang Academy of Sciences, etc.
（1） Research Goal
In this study, MRI is used to analyze the visual memory of the macaque brain, and the analysis data lays the foundation for preliminary research on brain cognitive and neurological mechanisms.
（2） Key Science Problems to be solved
a. The first key issue of this study is to obtain imaging data of the macaque brain visual memory;
b. The key technical issue of this study is the acquisition and comparison of imaging data;
c. The key problem to be solved in this study is to establish the basis of preliminary research on brain cognitive and neurological mechanisms through visual memory analysis of macaque brain.
2. Existing Research Result (Patents, SCI Papers)
