Inside the human brain, scientists have discovered a multidimensional universe.

According to scientists, the human brain can create structures in up to 11 dimensions. The human brain can manage and generate up to 11 dimensions, according to a study published in Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience.
According to the Blue Brain Project, dimensions are not interpreted in the traditional sense of a dimension, which most of us understand. Scientists found exciting new data on the complexity of the human brain as part of Project Blue Brain.

“We discovered a world that we had never imagined,” said Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project and a professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. Even in a speck of the brain, there are tens of millions of these particles spread out over seven dimensions. We discovered structures with up to eleven dimensions in some networks.”

The graphic tries to represent something that cannot be seen: a multidimensional cosmos of structures and places. On the left can be found a computerized replica of a section of the neocortex, the most evolved portion of the brain. On the right, various shapes of various sizes and geometries are used to illustrate constructions with dimensions ranging from one to seven and more. The central “black hole” represents a collection of multidimensional voids or cavities. In a new paper published in Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, Blue Brain Project researchers say that clusters of neurons attached to such holes provide the necessary link between brain structure and function.

“The mathematics commonly used to investigate networks is unable to detect the high-dimensional structures and spaces that we can now see clearly,” Markram revealed.

Instead, the scientists chose to investigate algebraic topology. Algebraic topology is a branch of mathematics that studies topological spaces using abstract algebra techniques. In applying this approach in their latest work, the Blue Brain Project scientists were joined by mathematicians Kathryn Hess of EPFL and Ran Levi of the University of Aberdeen.

Professor Hess explained: “Algebraic topology is like a telescope and a microscope at the same time. You can zoom in on the nets to find hidden structures, the trees in the forest, and see the empty spaces, the clearings, all at the same time.”
The researchers observed that brain structures are formed when a group of neurons (brain cells that carry impulses) form a clique. Each neuron in the group is connected to every other neuron in the group in a unique way, resulting in the formation of a new entity. The “dimension” of an element increases as the number of neurons in a clique increases.

The scientists used algebraic topography to model the architecture within a virtual brain that they developed with the help of computers. They later confirmed their findings by doing experiments on genuine brain tissue. The researchers discovered that by adding inputs to the virtual brain, cliques of ever HIGHER dimensions were formed. In addition, the researchers detected gaps between the cliques.

Ran Levi from the University of Aberdeen said: “The appearance of high-dimensional cavities when the brain is processing information means that the neurons in the network react to stimuli in an extremely organized way. It is as if the brain reacts to a stimulus by building and then demolishing a tower of multidimensional blocks, starting with rods (1D), then planks (2D), then cubes (3D), and then more complex geometries with 4D, 5D. , etc. The progression of activity through the brain resembles a multidimensional sandcastle that materializes out of sand and then disintegrates.
New information about the human brain provides never-before-seen insights into how the brain processes information. However, scientists have said that it is still unclear how cliques and cavities arise in such a unique way.
The new research could one day help scientists solve one of neuroscience’s biggest mysteries: where the brain “stores” memories.
