The Human Connectome Project represents the first large scale attempt to collect and share data of a scope and detail sufficient to begin the process of addressing deeply fundamental questions about human connectional anatomy and variation. This is a video driven by some of the brain connection data.

The data driving this video were taken from lab results of the changes in my liver and kidney function caused by being infused with genetically engineered mice antibodies. These antibodies take the place of my natural antibodies that are attacking my own tissue due to Rheumatoid Arthritis. The medical symbol for antibodies is usually ‘Y’.

The data driving this video were downloaded from an open source United States Federal Government site that doctors globally use to input adverse events involving medications. I have filtered the data to include only psychiatric medication and to include only the events that were life threatening or required hospitalization or resulted in death of the patient. The data are from the first three months of 2012.

The data driving the colors, shapes, and perspectives of this video are from The Human Connectome Project. The HCP represents the first large-scale attempt to collect and share data of a scope and detail sufficient to begin the process of addressing deeply fundamental questions about human connectional anatomy and variation.
