Center for Imaging Research Lunch and Learn

Fall 2013

This year, the Center for Imaging Research is sponsoring weekly lunch-and-learn sessions on Wednesdays. Presenters are reviewing manuscripts in NeuroImage Volume 80, Mapping the Connectome.

"'Connectomics' is the study of connectivity in the brain; the term has come to include the mapping of both structural and functional connectivity, ranging in scale from the microscopic (neuronal-level) to the macroscopic (millimetre). The term 'connectome' was only recently coined (Sporns, Hagmann), although 'connectome is a term with a short history but a long past' (Catani).

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."

-- Steve Smith, PhD, FMRIB, Oxford, United Kingdom
