An up-to-date overview of the field of connectomics, introducing concepts and mechanisms underlying brain network change at different stages.
Marcus Kaiser is Professor of Neuroinformatics in the School of Computing at Newcastle University and Visiting Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology and is Chair of Neuroinformatics UK.
A central focus of contemporary connectomics is on patterns of
change -- capturing how connectomes grow, mature, degenerate,
evolve, adapt and reconfigure. This important book provides a
comprehensive account of how these changes unfold, and how they
relate to brain dynamics, cognition and behavior.

From the wiring diagram of the worm nervous system through
to the gamechanging potential of big data and AI, the author
clearly lays out basic principles and thoughtfully guides the
reader through cuttingedge discoveries and future applications of
the exploding science of brain connectomics.
