Welcome to the HBI Connectome!

Harvard is home to hundreds of neuroscience researchers, ranging from the undergraduate level to the faculty level, working on almost every imaginable aspect of nervous system development, structure, and function—as well as a wide range of neurologic and psychiatric conditions. This neuro community is spread out geographically and administratively, across many different departments, centers, campuses and institutions. The HBI Connectome aims to connect individuals across all of these domains.
