Quickie: Check this out

For those interested in neuroscience and change management I suggest you check out Cecil Dijoux’s article at his blog, #hypertextual: Social Neuroscience, SCARF Model and Change Management.  The article is very well written and acts as invitation to a variety of good informtation.

He also has a great image of what is now being called “The Connectome” – a representation of how neurons are interconnected in the brain.  The data for the image is derived from special types of MRI scans.  The work is very early in its evolution.  The image presented at #hypertextual is a compilation of information from many patients.  However, in future years images from single individuals may become one of our most important brain diagnostic tools.  Some day we will understand certain types of illnesses as disorders of the brain’s “wiring diagram”.
