A Wiring Diagram of the Brain

Image: David Van Essen for the WU-Minn HCP Consortium LIGHTBULB MOMENT: This color-coded map, created by researchers at the Human Connectome Project, illustrates relative levels of functional connectivity between points in the brain’s cerebral cortex. In early March, an unusual 2 terabytes of data hit the Web: the first batch of images from a massively ambitious brain-mapping effort called the Human Connectome Project . Thousands of images showed the brains of 68 healthy volunteers, with different regions glowing in bright jewel tones. These data, freely available for download via the project’s website, give neuroscientists unprecedented insights into which parts of the brain act in concert to do something as seemingly simple as recognizing a face. 
 The project leaders say their work is enabled by very recent advances in both brain-scanning hardware and image-processing s...
