New paper on connectomics published in Nature communications

— The paper on "The challenge of mapping the human connectome based on diffusion tractography" has been published in Nature Communications. This paper is the result of a large international challenge gathering the main groups active in brain connectivity anaylsis by diffusion MRI. Eight members of the EPFL-LTS5 are among the authors of this important paper.
