Brain Connectivity Workshop Series

Do not sacrifice x-y resolution for isovoxels trending idea

As a Co-lead for this workshop series, I am entering an example topic for discussion here.

The idea to explore is what is the minimum z-resolution needed to capture and distinguish small ultrastructure objects (e.g. gap junctions, microtubules, neurofilaments, vesicles, polyribosomes, extracellular space, spine apparatus substructure, astroglial end processes, etc.) without overlap between objects across z. We want to... more »

Brain Connectivity Workshop Series

Has evolution conserved canonical computing microcircuitry? trending idea

Has evolution conserved microcircuitry that performs a small number of identifiable, verifiable canonical computations?

If so, connectomes can add value not by their completeness, but by their presentation of motifs which can be categorized as one of a number of basis functions. In spite of the ongoing, global, development of connectomes, we incompletely understand these general and reductionist questions:

Exactly what... more »

Brain Connectivity Workshop Series

A Periodic Table for the Human Forebrain Aiding Connectomics trending idea

My name is John LaMuth and I would like to draw your attention to my own recently devised periodic table for the neurosciences that offers a crucial holistic overview of a top-down nature effectively complementing the bottom-up approach. This dual parameter grid represents a Cartesian coordinate system utilizing the basic neuro-anatomical parameters of input specificity and phylogenetic age, as described further at my... more »
