Mapping connections in the human brain


The different parts of the brain communicate with each other through millions of connections. These connections are how the brain organizes itself. You can think of each of the connections like a road on a map – some of the roads are 16 lane highways where you can get where you’re going quickly, and some are dirt roads that are hard to travel.


CONNECT uses state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to help us see these connections in the brain and understand how they work. MRI is a widely-used medical imaging technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create pictures of the brain.
