Nature: Connectomes make the map


This article in the journal Nature explains how the Developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP) will play a significant role in the future of neuroscience. The ground-breaking techniques developed and employed by the dHCP team, from successfully scanning babies with no general anaesthetic, to cutting edge diffusion MRI techniques are discussed in relation to the wider area of connectomics research. Projects such as this and the related Human Connectome Project, in the US are soon to be an essential and open resource for scientists across the world.
