Connectome Project

Human Connectome Project
Stunning data has been released by the Human Connectome Project - Brain wide Axonal labelling which visualises the main connection pathways between brain areas. Data is mainly based on genetic twin studies as well as  high-angular diffusion and diffusion spectrum imaging of around 50 subjects (at the moment). The dataset presented here holds great potential value not only for neuroscience presentations but mostly as a reference work for (not exclusively) brain scanning techniques. Additionally, it will drive the optimization of those highly advanced imaging methods. Check out their gallery for some examples
