The brain connectome is a comprehensive map of neural elements linked by connections. At macroscale, the connectome is formed by brain regions and white matter tracts, interplaying with the molecule-level transcriptome and the cell-level cytoarchitecture. Combining multiscale datasets, my research mainly focuses on exploring the biological mechanism under human brain connectome and improving our understanding of the connectome-based pathology in psychiatric diseases.
