Study: HCP Young Adult
The ongoing HCP Lifespan Pilot is collecting multimodal imaging data acquired across the lifespan, in 6 age groups (4-6, 8-9, 14-15, 25-35, 45-55, 65-75) and using scanners that differ in field strength (3T, 7T) and maximum gradient strength (70-100 mT/m). The scanning protocols are similar to those for the WU-Minn Young Adult HCP, except shorter in duration.
The report should be of interest for those groups applying for the newly released FOAs from the NIH Blueprint:
Lifespan Human Connectome Project: Development (U01) for healthy subjects ages 5-21.
Lifespan Human Connectome Project: Aging (U01) for healthy subjects ages 36-90+.
The NIH also recently issued an FOA to solicit applications that will apply the HCP data collection protocols to human disease and disorder cohorts (PAR-14-281: Connectomes Related to Human Disease (U01).
