The Human Connectome Project - Mapping the Human Brain

The Human Connectome Project, or HCP, has brought the combined brainpower of 36 investigators — including six from the University of Minnesota —from 11 different institutions to bear on the challenges of understanding the human brain. Now just past the midpoint, the five-year, $30 million research effort is mapping the vast network of neurons and the trillions of interconnections that compose this elaborate organ.
