IIIT Hyderabad’s researchers creates first-ever ‘Indian Brain Atlas (IBA)’
The researchers at the International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad (IIITH) have created the first ever Indian Brain Atlas (IBA). They stated that the average Indian brain is smaller in height, width, and volume as compared to the western and eastern population like the Chinese and Korean. The immediate implication of this finding can be seen in treatment outcomes of neurological problems or brain related ailments – like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease etc.
