Resolution of brain mystery

  1. 1. Resolution of Brain Mystery - Prospects!Summary: Obama administration recently announced its plan to fund brainmapping project expressing the hope that this project will demystify human brain.However certain doubts are expressed herein and it is suggested thatcomprehensive interpretation of existing data is the first step in the right direction.I recently came to know about brain mapping project of Obama Administration.I wish to state that brain is not a static structure. It has relatively stable structuralelements and variable structural elements. So brain mapping can provide usbetter information about relatively fixed structural elements but may not be ofmuch help as far as variable structural elements are concerned. It may provide usno clue to why and how variable structural elements vary. So a research primarilydirected at brain mapping is likely to leave brain as enigmatic as ever.Therefore brain mapping will enhance understanding of brain structure andfunction but in a limited way.The situation is analogous to gene mapping project which has not led tocomprehensive understanding of gene expression.The root cause of this difficulty is that Physicists are not willing to think beyondmatter and energy and Biologists are not willing to think beyond Darwin.In my book "Encounter of Science and Philosophy - A Synthetic View"(http://sciencengod.com/)I have stated that to understand gene expression wehave to move beyond molecular anatomy of gene into the domain of naturalcomputing which in turn is material expression of consciousness that permeatesthis universe.Likewise in the domain of brain we need to recognize goal directed functioning ofbrain with a view to keep identity and integrity of an individual with the help ofnatural computing which manifests as molecular computing etc.Until and unless research is carried out with the right perspective, data huntingalone will be insufficient to meet research objectives. Even as on date voluminousamount of data exists which requires comprehensive interpretation in the light of
  2. 2. above stated observations.Therefore comprehensive interpretation of available data should receive apriority over further data hunting. However once comprehensive interpretation ofavailable data is available, than it can be used to guide further research using themost advanced techniques as per the needs.Author: Dr Mahesh C.
