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
florderst: “ shawnali: “ The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.
The image on the left shows a dissection of a human brain, performed by Ludwig and Klingler from post mortem tissue. The dissection reveals major anatomical features of the brain, but does not reveal the brain’s connections. Shown on the right is a complete map of the major anatomical connections linking distinct regions of the cerebral cortex. The map was generated by Hagmann in 2008 from magnetic resonance imaging data acquired from a living person. In its entirety, the brain consists...

Mapping the Human Brain to Understand the Human Mind
When mapped and color-coded, the brain is a beautiful thing. These mind blowing visuals are images of the human brain’s pathways, tracking the circuits in our heads and showing how we process information with bright, neon colors. The Human Connectome Project are the masterminds behind these amazing unearthly looking scientific studies.
Scientists made an AI that can read minds Whether its using AI to help organize a Lego collection or relying on an algorithm to protect our cities deep learning neural networks seemingly become more impressive and complex each day. Now however some scientists are pushing the capabilities of these algorithms to a whole new level - theyre trying to use them to read minds. By reverse-engineering signals sent by the brain researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have been working on an AI that…
