Professor George Paxinos from Neuroscience Research Australia has discovered a hidden region of the human brain.

The newly-discovered region, named the endorestiform nucleus, is located within the inferior cerebellar peduncle, an area that integrates sensory and motor information to refine our posture, balance and fine motor movements.

Professor Paxinos suspected its existence three decades ago but has only now been able to see it due to better staining and imaging techniques.
