    The olfactory bulb is about % of the human brain by volume and 2% of the mouse brain by volume. (McGann, J.P., Poor human olfaction is a 19th-century myth, Science, Volume Issue , eaam DOI: /, ). The participants in the study were each assigned a partner. Pairs consisted of two males, two females or a male and a female. Then, while wearing the NIRS probes, each person sat in front a computer, across the table from their partner.

    Do men and women have different brains? Previous neuroimage studies sought to answer this question based on morphological difference between specific brain regions, reporting unfortunately conflicting results. In the present study, we aim to use a deep learning technique to address this challenge based on a large open-access, diffusion MRI database recorded from Cited by: 5. More importantly, rats and humans often suffer from the same diseases. That's because humans and rats have the same basic physiology, similar organs, and similar body plans.
