Using freely available MRI data of structural components mapping of human brain from different universities (primarily Rajat Jain, 25; 38 years old lady from UK), we have built actual structural database of the human brain components; e.g. neural network connectome data, blood vessel map, ventricles, cavities for cerebral spinal fluid, hippocampus regions of mid brain etc. In previous studies we have argued that every single element in the brain behaves as dielectric resonator. Here we run rigorous dielectric resonance simulation to verify the hypothesis that scale free resonance does exist in the material architecture of the brain. From MRI derived structures we simulate the resonance frequencies, distribution of electric and magnetic field of the brain components in CST, detect the phase response behavior, specially phase transition and symmetry breaking as a function of resonance frequency. We find that electric and magnetic fields distribute inhomogeneously in the dielectric structure, not just in the neural branches, but also in the blood vessels and proteins like axon and microtubule bundles. The resonance frequencies show a characteristic topological pattern, specially, every single brain component is splitting electromagnetic field in such a way that at certain frequencies magnetic field dominates, at certain resonance frequency electric field dominates. This distinct behavior of splitting fields at all spatial and time scale was never reported before. We speculate that there may exist an unified geometric pattern hidden in the vibrational frequencies of the brain components hold important information for the brain’s information processing.
