People change.  And when they do, their brains change too.

The MyConnectome project is characterizing how the brain of one person changes over the course of an entire year.  It is almost certainly the most ambitious study of a single living person’s brain ever attempted. The data will provide new insights into the dynamics of brain activity and their relationship to bodily metabolism and psychological function.

See recent press coverage of the project at MIT Tech Review, Austin Monthly, and NPR.
