Research Project Highlights

The Developing Human Connectome Project aims to create the first 4-dimensional connectome of early life – a dynamic map of human brain connectivity from 20 to 44 weeks which will link imaging, clinical, behavioural and genetic information. This will allow the scientific community to create new studies into the earliest stages of neurodevelopment.
