Study Maps The Odd Structural Similarities Between The Human Brain And The Universe

One fascinating quirk of the Universe is that shapes and patterns can be found in hugely different contexts: the Golden Spiral can be seen in the human cochlea and the shape of a spiral galaxy; the fractal geometry of veins echoed in the branching of lightning.

In a bold new pilot study, an astrophysicist and a neurosurgeon have bumped it up a notch, using quantitative analysis to compare two of the most complex systems in nature: the neuronal network in the human brain and the cosmic network of galaxies in the Universe.

It’s actually not that peculiar a comparison. You may have seen an image that occasionally gets shared around, showing a human neuron and a simulated galaxy cluster, side-by-side; the two look startlingly similar.

But there’s a lot more to the human brain – and the Universe – than how it looks.

So astrophysicist Franco Vazza of the University of Bologna in Italy and neurosurgeon Alberto Feletti of the University of Verona in Italy have spent the last few years investigating to determine if the similarities are more than skin-deep.

    This is a very interesting post and one that opens up possibilities to the unknown. Just suppose, that the brain is a universe in itself..
    Following this up with the link you supplied.
    Cheers

      Thanks so much for your comment! If you study the human brain it is amazing how much information is contained in the folds of the ordinary brain. Then you have Einstein’s brain which was folded differently. Stay Safe!
