Connectomics is a relatively new field in science that looks to map and analyze the millions of connections in our brain. Currently, there is no widely accepted standard for visualizing connectomic information. Our research combines the connectomic data from standard clinical imaging and uses the powerful visualization capabilities at UIC to propose novel methods for describing an entire cerebral map. This photo shows our first attempt at describing the brain in the CAVE2 (TM), an immersive virtual reality environment. Each glyph in the model represents a cubic centimeter of the brain, while the communication tracts in our brain are mapped using white lines.


This exhibit competition is organized by the University of Illinois at Chicago Graduate College and the University Library.
