Can we figure out the brain's wiring diagram?
In a new study, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, we reveal important new limitations - and opportunities - for how brain imaging methods might be able to map out the brain's 'connectome', taking advantage of perhaps the highest quality diffusion MRI data currently available. The research emerged from a new collaboration between the Sackler Centre and the NIH, and was led by Ph.D. student Colin Reveley (Sussex), with Profs. David Leopold and Frank Ye at NIH. There is an accessible summary of the paper on NeuroBanter.
