In the field of “connectomics”, virtual reality can allow you to immerse yourself in a three-dimensional representation of the brain connectome, where you can freely navigate and interact with different brain regions and their connections. This immersive experience can facilitate a deeper understanding of the brain’s complex network and its underlying mechanisms, which can have important implications for neuroscience education, research and clinical applications. We have developed a VR framework, VRNConnect, for exploring brain connectivity data.
