The connectome is a map of neural connections, which make up white matter in the brain and are likened to a wiring diagram. The HCP project aims to develop tools to process high-angular diffusion (HARDI) and diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) from normal individuals, optimize high-field imaging technologies and neurocognitive tests, and use a representative sample of normal subjects to collect connectomic, behavioral, and genotype data. The HCP plans to design and use web-based informatics and desseminate data acquisition and analysis as well as educational and training outreach materials.
