The comprehensive microstructural human connectome (COMIC): from long-range to short-association fibers

In this DFG funded project PIs and their teams from three different institutions (MPI-CBS, UKE, PFI) will work closely together on developing models, methods and techniques to create a better map of the human microstructural connectome from long-range to short-association fibers using in vivo and ex vivo MRI as well as histology.

Human microstructural connectomics: Computational modelling and validation with histology and CLARITY (MICO-MRI)

Long-range connections comprise only about 10% of total CNS connections. Their arrangement, length, and microstructural properties are of utmost importance for the functional organization of the CNS, because they determine how information is distributed across the brain. In particular, axon diameter and g-ratio (the ratio between axonal body and axon plus myelin sheath) is related to the conduction velocity and thus relevant for the information transfer rate in a functional CNS network.
