Boston: In recent research, neuroscientists examined the way brain regions function independently and collectively. The research could help in a better understanding of parts of the brain that are used to process sensory information and remember different skills.

“From a biomedical standpoint, the question is whether certain parts of the brain are [solely responsible for] certain types of function,” says Jerry Chen, a College of Arts and Sciences assistant professor of biology and faculty member of Boston University`s Center for Systems Neuroscience. 

The latest research from his lab, published in Neuron, could eventually help us determine which abilities are particularly difficult to recover after a traumatic brain injury — likely because these skills are represented in only
