Aspen Brain Forum: Post 2

We have heard David Van Essen from Washington University in St. Louis who spoke about the systematic exploration of human brain circuits in both wellness and disease. He spoke specifically about the Human Connectome project consortium with healthy adults. This project will include 1,200 individuals including twins and non-twin siblings. The speaker indicated that resulting data that should yield valuable information about the healthy human brain and will be made available to the neuroscience community.
