Using Connectome Workbench
Connectome Workbench is a visualization and discovery tool used to map data generated by the Human Connectome Project. This tool allows you to explore multiple types of data, including connectivity data, in a fully interactive way. Workbench Beta version 0.84 is now available for Beta testing. Get Workbench Beta now.
Workbench allows you to explore data and activity on the surface, as well as in the volume of the brain. Connectome Workbench works seamlessly with ConnectomeDB to import averaged data from a group of subjects and view that data on a group averaged brain atlas in Workbench. In future versions of the software, users will be able to use Workbench to display and analyze functional task and connectivity, diffusion, and behavioral data from single subjects or groups of subjects defined by a user-initiated search of ConnectomeDB.
