The Human Connectome Project (HCP) is acquiring and sharing vast amounts of neuroimaging data from healthy young adults, using high-resolution structural MRI, diffusion MRI, resting-state fMRI, and task-fMRI. Together, these complementary modalities provide invaluable information and insights regarding the organization and connectivity of human visual cortex. This presentation will highlight recent results obtained using surface-based analysis and visualization approaches to characterize structural and functional connectivity of visual cortex in individuals and group averages.
