"The Human Connectome Project"
This is a national research project with the purpose of mapping the neural pathways that underline human brain function to advance the capabilities for analyzing brain connections ("connectomics"). Each participant will receive an MRI brain exam. The principal investigators at the University of Minnesota are Drs. Kamil Ugurbil and Essa Yacoub.
$30 compensation is paid for each MTI appointment and free parking at the Center for Magnetic research is provided. Participants must be within the age groupings of 45 - 55 or 65 - 75.
Express your interest in being an MRI participant to the University Retirees Volunteer Center and provide your phone # and email address. We will submit your information to the coordinator, Andrew Oliver, to contact you for making an appointment.

Note: This is a new Brain MRI study and not to be confused with the BRINK (brain/kidney study) or the MRI Antioxidant studies. If you have requested participation in these you may also participate in "Connectome."
