Human Brain Connectivity Database

Direct evidence for neuronal connections in human brain tissue is very rare and difficult to obtain, so there is high value in any existing reports of neuroanatomical studies conducted in post-mortem human brain tissue.

Here we present a preliminary database of neuroanatomical connectivity reports specifically for the human brain, which have been manually curated. This database and user interface will be expanded and improved in the near future.
