Navigate the brain in a way that was never before possible; fly through major brain pathways, compare essential circuits, zoom into a region to explore the cells that comprise it, and the functions that depend on it.
The Human Connectome Project aims to provide an unparalleled compilation of neural data, an interface to graphically navigate this data and the opportunity to achieve never before realized conclusions about the living human brain.
Director of NIH Praises the Human Connectome Project
Muse’s latest album uses a Human Connectome Project rendering of white matter tracks. The Human Connectome Project (HCP) Consortium is pleased to have had its graphical renderings of brain connectivity chosen by Grammy Award winning international recording artists Muse (www.muse.mu) for the cover of their latest album ‘The 2nd Law.’ The images selected illustrate the complexity of the neural wiring of the human brain as computed using sophisticated neuroimaging methods and data processing tools developed by the members of our team.
