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

Definition from own experience or research:
Področje znanosti, ki se ukvarja s sestavljanjem, preslikavo in analizo podatkov o nevronskih povezavah.

Example sentence(s):
  • The word is a suggested neologism based on the existing word "konektom" which is already existent in Slovenian. There is no online mention of this word yet. - Own suggestion  

The word is not yet established in the Slovenian vocabulary, but is a logical addition to other terms existing in this field. It also already exist in other close languages with whom we share a great deal of scientific terminology - Croatian, Serbian, and Bosnian.
