It may appear shrunken inwards from the skull. The gyri (bumps) will look ‘deflated’, and the sulci (grooves) will be wider. Usually however, researchers are less interested in the outward appearance of the brain than in its cell structure and connectivity, perhaps within a discrete region. Staining techniques have enabled researchers to identify small groups of neurons, or even individual neurons using a light microscope. Microscopy has, of course developed considerably in the last 100 years, and today electron microscopes can produce images of individual synapses (junctions between neurons), or even of receptor sites on the surface of neurons for neurotransmitter chemicals.
The subject had to say what (if anything) they had seen after each presentation. 6).

Using this procedure the true nature of the split brain syndrome was revealed. If a picture of a car was flashed to the right of the fixation point, the patient reported seeing a car. This would be expected because the image travelled to the left (talking) hemisphere, and the patient could say what s/he saw.
In fact, about two-thirds of cortical tissue is hidden in these folds. If you could flatten out the human cortex, it would cover a square measuring about 50 cm ϫ 50 cm. Cortex means bark and it is a very apt term in this case, for the cortex is only a few millimetres thick. Its pinky grey appearance tells us that it is made up primarily of cell bodies (remember cell bodies do not have myelin sheaths), which are usually arranged in a series of between four and six layers parallel to the surface.
