Google Releases “Largest Ever” Map of Brain Connectivity


Late last year Google open-sourced technology that allows researchers to view petabyte-scale 3D models of brains in a web browser, with the Neuroglancer project used to build 3D models of a brain’s neural pathways in interactive visualisations.

Now Google AI and a research team from Janelia Research Campus in Virginia have released a highly detailed mapping of the neuronal connectivity of a fly’s brain, as well as the suite of tools they used for analysis and visualisations of the results.

The project represents what they describe as the “largest synapse-resolution map of brain connectivity that has ever
