Contents:
Parcellations and connectivity patterns in human and macaque cerebral cortex -- Nanoconnectomics -- Inhibitory cell cypes, circuits and receptive fields in mouse visual cortex -- Form meets function in the brain: observing the activity and structure of specific neural connections -- The network for intracortical communication in mouse visual cortex -- The brain in space -- In-vivo connectivity in monkeys -- Connectome networks: from cells to systems -- Intra- and Inter-hemispheric connectivity supporting hemispheric specialization -- Genetics of the connectome and the ENIGMA project.
In: Springer Nature eBookSummary: This book has brought together leading investigators who work in the new arena of brain connectomics. This includes 'macro-connectome' efforts to comprehensively chart long-distance pathways and functional networks; 'micro-connectome' efforts to identify every neuron, axon, dendrite, synapse, and glial process within restricted brain regions; and 'meso-connectome' efforts to systematically map both local and long-distance connections using anatomical tracers. This book highlights cutting-edge methods that can accelerate progress in elucidating static 'hard-wired' circuits of the brain as well as dynamic interactions that are vital for brain function. The power of connectomic approaches in characterizing abnormal circuits in the many brain disorders that afflict humankind is considered. Experts in computational neuroscience and network theory provide perspectives needed for synthesizing across different scales in space and time. Altogether, this book provides an integrated view of the challenges and opportunities in deciphering brain circuits in health and disease.
