The environment has a significant impact on the brain.
specialists 'yasuvaly that the environment, including the shape of the room in which he lives living creature has a significant impact on the brain. Scientific studies on this subject was published in the journal Nature.
Biologists have studied the neurons of the grid (grid-neurons) rats that lived in cells of different shapes: round, square, triangular, hexagonal. Grid-neurons help animals and people oriented in the surrounding space. A feature of these neurons is that they are arranged in a hexagonal grid plot excitement. The distance from one section to the destruction of the same six neighboring areas are always at an angle of 60 degrees.
However, scientists have found that this is not always the case. The form cells, which live rats, had a direct impact on the shape of grids lots of excitement, " breaking " their correct structure.
Experts gather to review the mathematical models that describe the behavior of neurons grid, and 'find out how to change the grid shape affects the body's ability to navigate in space.
