connectome project

Connectomes Related To Human Disease HCP Disease studies apply HCP-style data collection protocols toward subject cohorts at risk for, or suffering from, diseases or disorders affecting the brain, with a goal of providing comparable data to healthy HCP subjects across the lifespan. Our original target was to study 1, healthy young adults. Studying younger and older populations and populations with brain disorders also entails using shorter individual scan durations than the 15 minutes tolerated by the healthy young adults of HCP. The tensor can be visualized as an ellipsoid in 3D space, showing fluid mappings and brain connectivity. HCP has produced stunning maps of neural fibers crisscrossing the brain.

Connectome Project

The WU-Minn-Oxford consortium developed improved MRI instrumentation, image acquisition and image analysis methods for mapping the connectivity in the human brain at spatial resolutions significantly better than previously available; using these methods, WI-Minn-Oxford consortium collected a large amount of MRI and behavioral data on 1, healthy adults — twin pairs and their siblings from families – using a special 3 Tesla MRI instrument.

Human Connectome Project

The widely used FreeSurfer surface registration method has provided a major advance over conventional volume-based methods in dealing with folding variability. Data Coordinating Center Lroject Connectome Coordination Facility, funded by Blueprint inmaintains a central data repository for Human Connectome data collected from the original HCP consortia as well as other research laboratories.


Overall, our goal in connectomics is to map the hundreds of functionally distinct areas, or “parcels” of the human brain and to understand how these areas are connected and how each contributes to our behavior.

In aggregate, these advances constitute a new “HCP-style” neuroimaging paradigm whose seven core tenets 1 offer connecyome modern alternative to the traditional approach that has dominated the field for two decades.

The final major HCP release, slated for Fallwill meet this target with imaging data from 1, subjects, plus out-of-scanner, behavior-only data from another Light Our efforts in the Connectome Project are focused on two imaging modalities, one using photons and the other using electrons. By collecting data specifically from individuals with these diseases, researchers hope to have a more certain idea of how brain connections in these individuals connectoms over time.

We can be optimistic that these “HCP-fast” acquisition protocols will be sufficient to increase the sensitivity for characterizing what may be subtle changes across the lifespan and differences between disease and control groups.

Learn about multi-modal neuroimaging data, analysis, and visualization tools of the Human Connectome Project. The CCF currently supports 20 human connectome studies. Six years later, the “young adult HCP” is drawing to a close as successor projects, targeting the full human lifespan as well as diseases of the brain, continue.

A few brief examples illustrate the scope and diversity of emerging discoveries: For the HCP, we used state-of-the-art existing methods to remove these distortions, and implemented new or refined methods to achieve further improvements.

The Human Connectome Project: Progress and Prospects

Over publications emerged from the initial HCP data release. Here we use a direct approach: Both efforts built upon existing multidisciplinary collaborations and employed a multiple PI leadership approach that provided a rigorous system of organization and oversight to each program. Our own brains have tens of billions of neurons connected through perhaps one hundred trillion synapses.

Using a projject of non-invasive imaging technologiesincluding resting-state fMRI and task-based functional MRIMEG and EEGand diffusion MRIthe WU-Minn will be mapping connectomes at the macro scale — mapping large brain connwctome that can be divided into anatomically and functionally distinct areas, rather than mapping individual neurons. This information is only used for diagnostic or debugging purposes, to help us optimize our website’s performance, and is not shared externally.

Connectome software will be downloadable as individual components with full documentation on installing and using the tools. Light can be used to image living tissue and accommodates many spectral channels, but special tricks have to be used to resolve structures much smaller than the wavelength of light.
