Mapping the Connectome
Volume 80, Edited by Stephen Smith
As Steve Smith writes in his Introduction to the issue:
This special issue on “Mapping the Connectome” is a review of the major issues and current projects relating to connectomics; it aims to be comprehensive, albeit with a strong bias towards the macroscopic, in vivo, human connectome, as most appropriate for the readership of NeuroImage.
In addition to many papers by leading experts in connectomics, 8 original manuscripts authored by the Human Connectome Project WU-Minn consortium detailing the state of the project’s components as of March 2013 are published in this special issue:
- The WU-Minn Human Connectome Project: An overview
- Pushing spatial and temporal resolution for functional and diffusion MRI in the Human Connectome Project
- The minimal preprocessing pipelines for the Human Connectome Project
- Advances in diffusion MRI acquisition and processing in the Human Connectome Project
- Resting-state fMRI in the Human Connectome Project
- Function in the human connectome: Task-fMRI and individual differences in behavior
- Adding dynamics to the Human Connectome Project with MEG
- Human Connectome Project informatics: Quality control, database services, and data visualization
A summary of each of these manuscripts is available on the HCP Publications page.
Please refer to these papers for details on the methodology and rationale behind the collection, analysis, and ongoing development of tools for distributing and visualizing HCP data. Happy reading!
