I first interviewed Olaf Sporns, author of Discovering the Human Connectome, back in BSP 74. This episode is a followup interview that focuses on recent advances in the rapidly evolving field of Connectomics. We talk about the field's challenges and promise, including the importance of network theory as a tool for dealing with the huge amounts of data being generated by researchers.
