Modern connectomics – the mapping of brain circuit connectivity at synaptic resolution – has advanced tremendously in recent years. Neuroscientist are starting to have access to unprecedented information about the structure of neural circuits. Image acquisition and data processing methods are continuously improving and research is shifting from laborious, manual circuit reconstruction to high-throughput mapping pipelines. Thereby, a growing number of digital brain circuit datasets with an extraordinary level of complexity are becoming available from various species, brain regions and developmental stages.

The BrainCircuits.io platform aims to become a hub for collecting, curating and disseminating brain circuit datasets to the wider neuroscience community for further analysis and comparative studies. You may start by exploring brain circuits datasets or reading more about comparative connectomics.
