“…Aided by modern computer algorithms, the team mapped roughly 7,000 neural connections of both sexes of C. elegans, while landmarking all synaptic locations. All the wiring data is available open source for anyone to browse.

The paper represents the first time we’ve been able to trace the entirety of the brain of a species. Although evolutionarily apart, the genes that direct neural connections in C. elegans are also those that go awry in autism, schizophrenia, and other complex neurological disorders in humans…”
