Successful kick-off of the Human Connectome Project
ESI is one of the nine partners in this prestigious project.
Noveber 30, 2010 

The kick-off of the Human Connectome Project (HCP) was held at Washington University’s EPNEC Center at October 27-28 2010. The HCP aims to understand the brain via elucidating the neural pathways that underlie its function. Deciphering this amazingly complex wiring diagram will reveal much about what makes us uniquely human and what makes every person different from all others. The HCP will comprehensively map human brain circuitry in 1,200 healthy adults using cutting-edge methods of non-invasive neuroimaging. It will yield invaluable information about brain connectivity, its relationship to behavior, and the contributions of genetic and environmental factors to individual differences in brain circuitry.
