The NIH Human Connectome Project


The NIH Human Connectome Project is an ambitious effort to map the neural

pathways that underlie human brain function. The overarching purpose of the

Project is to acquire and share data about the structural and functional connectivity

of the human brain. It will greatly advance the capabilities for imaging and analyzing

brain connections, resulting in improved sensitivity, resolution, and utility, thereby

accelerating progress in the emerging field of human connectomics.

Altogether, the Human Connectome Project will lead to major advances in our understanding

of what makes us uniquely human and will set the stage for future studies of abnormal

brain circuits in many neurological and psychiatric disorders…
