English term or phrase: connectomics
Definition from Olaf Sporns, Indiana University:
The field of science dealing with the assembly, mapping and analysis of data on neural connections.

Example sentence(s):
  • The idea that connections among neural elements are crucial for brain function has been central to modern neuroscience almost since its inception. Building on this idea, the emerging field of connectomics adds several new and important components. Network Neuroscience
  • In connectomics, a distinction is commonly drawn between three spatial scales: microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic (Bohland et al., 2009). Fundamentals of Brain Network Analysis
  • The usefulness of connectomics is somewhat debated. Among popular arguments against it is that connectomics typically provides a static image. It can show which neurons have the possibility of interacting, but it does not show if they do, how much they do, and what the effect of that interaction is. News Medical

Conectomică – disciplina care se ocupă cu studiul conectoamelor – hărţile complexe ale conexiunilor neuronale din creier.

Example sentence(s):
  • Studiul, desfășurat prin experimente pe șoareci, este parte a unei ramuri neuroștiințifice denumită, în engleză, “connectomics” (conectomică, într-o traducere forțată), preocupare științifică având ca obiectiv principal “fotografierea” conexiunilor din creier. - Stiinta si Tehnica

Cartografiere neuronală

Definition from News-Medical Life Sciences:
Cartografierea neuronală este studiul referitor la conexiunile structurale și funcționale dintre celulele creierului.

Example sentence(s):
  • Prin cartografierea neuronală se realizează hărți detaliate ale conexiunilor neuronale... Cartografierea neuronală evidențiază principiile care stau la baza construcției rețelelor neuronale precum și modul în care aceste principii susțin funcționarea retelelor. - New Trends in Connectomics  
  • Cartografierea neuronală este un subiect interdisciplinar, foarte dezbătut în prezent. Acest domeniu este rezultatul legăturii dintre informatică, inginerie și disciplinele neurologice. - 2019 School on Brain Connectomics  
  • Harta creierului este ca un desen cu numere pentru oamenii de stiinta, specializati in neurologie. La Institutul pentru Cercetari Medicale Max Planck din Heidelberg, Germania, cercetatorii au conceput o metoda mai rapida de calcul a conexiunilor neuronale, care alcatuiesc creierul, potrivit NewScientist...Acum, cu ajutorul a doua programe de calculator, Moritz Helmstaedter, Kevin Briggman si Winfried Denk au dezvoltat o modalitate rapida si precisa de realizare a unei cartografieri neuronale. - Harta creierului: Conexiunile neuronale,
