The original Human Connectome Project focused on gathering data from healthy young adults, aged 21-35, to build a high-quality dataset for comparability with other populations. As a natural extension of that work, a number of studies have been funded to gather data on healthy humans of other ages, ranging from birth to nonagenarians and beyond.
This series of studies has been funded by the National Institutes of Health to apply HCP-style data collection toward subject cohorts at risk for or suffering from diseases or disorders affecting the brain. These studies include:
