Human Connectome Project

conectoma -150x150The project “Human Connectome Project” is designed to investigate human brain connectivity, namely, how to connect different brain areas forming the circuits that make us feel and reason.

One goal is to draw an atlas of brain connections, allowing desarrolo and analyze their performance.

There are several theories that propose a geometric organization, recognize, but high resolution studies of brain connectivity performed with tracers had provided limited evidence that geometric organization. (

The beauty of the images that are being generated, computer processing means those obtained by MRI contrast with the simplicity of reveal structures.

The Human Connectome Project provides access to databases that are being generated by registering on its pages, approaching a valuable source of scientific knowledge to the area.

Human Connectome

The Human Connectome Project aims to provide an unparalleled compilation of neural data, an interface to graphically navigate this data and the opportunity to achieve never before realized conclusions about the living human brain.

The main directions of diffusion are used to map colors directions in which water molecules diffuse white matter. These data are used to reconstruct the 3D white matter tracts, as seen in one of the videos that the project provides us.
