Discovering How Memories Are Encoded In Connectomes.
Medical Advancements
Through Brain Connectomes
Neurons Activated By An Experience

Of The Experience Resides In This Pattern Of Connectivity -
Synapse

Pathological Connections Of Neural Activity = diseases like
Alzheimer's , Parkinson's, Schizophrenia
Discovery of A connectome can lead to better
understanding
of these diseases, as they are able to
View Them
