On Feb. 11, 2010, NASA launched an unprecedented solar observatory into space. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) flew up on an Atlas V rocket, carrying instruments that scientists hoped would revolutionize observations of the sun.

Illustration of the functional areas of the human cerebral cortex includes motor, sensory, visual, and auditory areas with mapped body regions affected by that location.

The foods we eat and the supplements we take to maintain a healthy body also help to keep the brain healthy. Choosing to eat a healthy diet which is low in saturated and trans-fats and replacing them with good fats greatly improves brain health.

The top image shows the four main sections of the cerebral cortex: the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the occipital lobe, and the temporal lobe. Functions such as movement are controlled by the motor cortex, and the sensory cortex receives information on vision, hearing, speech, and other senses. The bottom image shows the location of the brain's major internal structures.

Probiotics Change Brain Activity, Emotional Response

Researchers from UCLA's Geffen School of Medicine have determined that consuming a milk fermented with probiotics changes the brain activity of women.

Sensory Cortex...major input to brain from mechanoreceptors throughout body

Normal sensory input affects plasticity of neurons throughout brain.

Wernicke area contains motor neurons involved in the comprehension of speech. This area was first described in 1874 by German neurologist Carl Wernicke. The Wernicke area is located in the posterior third of the upper temporal convolution of the left hemisphere of the brain. Thus, it lies close to the auditory cortex. This area appears to be uniquely important for the comprehension of speech sounds and is considered the language comprehension centre.

Broca area: Region of the brain that contains neurons involved in speech function. This area, located in the frontal part of the left hemisphere of the brain, was discovered in 1861 by French.

Drinking fermented milk improved women's brain function to task-related responses and for emotions.  After the four weeks, those women who drank the probiotic milk had significantly different brain activity changes. Their task-related responses increased, and their activity within the sensory cortex regions changed, which was dramatically illustrated during rest periods. Their midbrain connectivity increased, which the researchers concluded probably explained their task-related response…
