I am my connectome

This lecture at TEDGlobal 2010 introduced the idea that “I am my connectome.” The slogan summarizes the hypothesis that personality traits, memories, mental disorders, and other aspects of personal identity are encoded in the pattern of connections between the brain’s neurons. The talk has been summarized on the Brain Posts blog.
