I work on the reconstruction of neural circuitry from human brain tissue. Current work is focused on generating the complete circuit diagram of a piece of human cerebral cortex containing approximately 30,000 cells and 1 billion synapses. Once we establish the basic connectivity patterns of normal human brains at this scale, we may be better placed to understand the diseases in which abnormal connectivity is thought to play a role, such as schizophrenia and epilepsy.
