The Human Connectome Project (HCP) is a project to construct a map of the complete structural and functional neural connections in vivo within and across individuals. The HCP represents the first large-scale attempt to collect and share data of a scope and detail sufficient to begin the process of addressing deeply fundamental questions about human connectional anatomy and variation

In this diffusion-weighted MRI, color-coded white matter fibers reveal the corpus callosum. Appearing as a central band of horizontal blue fibers, the structure connects the brain’s hemispheres. This image, by Roland Bammer, appeared in the Summer 2003 Stanford Medicine in a story the ethics of brain imaging.

New research suggests that ADHD comprises several meaningful subgroups — each one tied to a weak connection in the brain’s neural networks. Here, Joel Nigg, Ph.D. maps the regions of the brain that control attention, impulsivity, and emotion, and explains why scientists are studying the “white matter” connections between these circuits.
