The connectome is the wiring diagram of the nervous system. Mapping this network is necessary for discovering the underlying architecture of the brain and investigating the physical underpinning of cognition, intelligence, and consciousness [1, 2, 3]. It is also an important step in understanding how connectivity patterns are altered by mental illnesses, learning disorders, and age related changes in the brain.
