Connectome Scanning: Looking at the Brain's Wiring
- Published on Jul 24, 2017
- There's an MRI scanner in Cardiff that can look at how the brain's wired up: your connectome. It's nowhere close to science fiction singularity brain-uploading, but it might well be part of unlocking new medical treatments in the years to come.
Thanks to Prof. Derek Jones, and to all the team at CUBRIC : sites.cardiff.ac.uk/cubric/ -- and to the Cardiff University film crew with their gimballed camera!
