Providing a map of the human connectome is today a major challenge of diffusion. To reach this goal, two projects were launched: Human Brain Connectome in the USA and CONNECT project in Europe. This study was done in the frame of CONNECT project and included 79 subjects. In this study, we built the first probabilistic atlas of the human brain connectivity and diffusion quantitative statistics along bundles. We believe this novel atlas will help to infere the human brain connectome and further to provide some microstructural information for each bundle.
