Abstract: The Human Connectome Project (HCP, www.humanconnectome.org) began in 2010 with the aim to comprehensively map region-to-region brain connections and variability in 1,200 healthy adults ages 22-35 (HCP Young Adult) using advanced multimodal neuroimaging, plus extensive behavioral and heritability measures. The HCP has recently expanded to use neuroimaging approaches similar to those pioneered in HCP Young Adult to map connectivity in 1300+ children/adolescents ages 5-21 (HCP Lifespan Developing) and in 1200+ older adults (HCP Lifespan Aging), including some longitudinal datasets. All data, methods, and tools for acquisition, processing, analysis, and visualization are being freely released to the scientific community through the Connectome Coordinating Facility (CCF). We will highlight how the HCP has advanced neuroimaging, major findings from the young adult dataset and look to what questions we are aiming to answer with the new generation of projects.
