New connection beteween both sides of the brain

 

A recent study "Structural and functional brain rewiring clarifies preserved inter-hemisphere transfer in humans born without the corpus callosum" published on PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) has used neuroimaging techniques to find out anomalous brain routes in patients who had borned without the corpus callosum, a brain structure responsible for communication between both sides of the brain.
