Neuroscientists said they found something beyond the world’s imagination. They revealed the human brain hosts shapes and forms that have more than 11 dimensions.
Using the benefits of algebraic topology, the researchers discovered structures and complex geometric spaces in the human brain.
They claimed their newest research led them to believe the human brain holds shapes that extend to 11 dimensions.
The common human brain is evaluated to accommodate amazing 86 billion neurons, with certain links from each cell web and in every probable course. This means that the brain is developing a far-reaching cellular network that makes us able to think, reports Science Alert.
The Blue Brain project involved a global crew of scientists and according to the study published in the journal Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, they achieved a unique announcement.
Moreover, this team was able to find structures in the brain that demonstrate a multidimensional universe, bringing to light the first geometric draft of neural links and how they act to incentives.
Scientists, by computer modeling assistance, made it possible to comprehend the way the human brain cells are capable of arranging themselves in consideration to execute complicated functions.
The research typifies how the structures are built simultaneously as they are intertwined in a “merger” that creates a particular geometric structure.
Henry Markram, a prominent neuroscientist, and director of Blue Brain Project in Switzerland said: “We found a world that we had never imagined. There are tens of millions of these objects even in a small speck of the brain, up through seven dimensions. In some networks, we even found structures with up to 11 dimensions.”
Furthermore, every neuron in the human’s brain has the ability to combine to the next nearby one, with a precise movement to form an object with complex connections. As more neurons join the “set”, the more dimensions are added to the object.
Subsequently, the experts performed experiments on real brain tissue to confirm their outcome.
After they adjoined an incentive into the fundamental brain tissue, they found out that groups of increasingly higher dimensions are put together. Also, they discovered amidst these groups there are blank holes.
Ran Levi from Aberdeen University, who worked on the research said: “The appearance of high-dimensional cavities when the brain is processing information means that the neurons in the network react to stimuli in an extremely organized manner.”
“It is as if the brain reacts to a stimulus by building then razing a tower of multi-dimensional blocks, starting with rods (1D), then planks (2D), then cubes (3D), and then more complex geometries with 4D, 5D, etc. The progression of activity through the brain resembles a multi-dimensional sandcastle that materializes out of the sand and then disintegrates.”
It is well-known the 3D shapes in real life have height, width, and depth, however, these newly discovered objects although in real life don’t appear in more than three dimensions, the experts described them as 5,6,7 and up 100 dimensions.
Professor Cees van Leeuwen, from KU Leuven, Belgium, said: “Outside of physics, high-dimensional spaces are frequently used to describe complex data structures or conditions of systems, for instance, the state of a dynamical system in state space.”
“Space is simply the union of all the degrees of freedom the system has, and its state describes the values these degrees of freedom are actually assuming.”
