Dedicated to the communication of news, science, and information of interest to the brain mapping community, and to sharing and promoting the science of brain mapping.
  The purpose and goal of brain mapping is to advance the understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the human brain. Scientists in this field seek to gain knowledge of the physical processes that underlie human sensation, attention awareness and cognition. These results are immediately applicable to surgical intervention, to the design of medical interventions and to the treatment of psychological and psychiatric disorders.

The UW Human Brain Project is one project within the national Human Brain Project, a national multi-agency effort to develop informatics tools for managing the exploding amount of information that is accumulating about the human brain.The objective of the UW Human Brain Project effort is to organize functional information about the brain around the structural information framework that is the long term goal of our work. This application therefore extends the utility of the Digital Anatomist Project by using it to organize non-structural information
