Connectonomics & the Human Mind
Understanding Behaviour requires an understanding of how the mind works. The wellspring of exhibited behaviour or even exhibited personality has much to do with both your genes and your social conditioning. Its the interplay of Freudian and Neo-Freudian theory, combined.
Scientists are now trying to build a complete map of the human mind by deciphering the gene and social conditioning. The field, at a very nascent stage, is called connectomics, and the neuroscientists pursuing it compare their work to early efforts in genetics. What they are doing, these scientists say, is akin to trying to crack the human genome — only this time around, they want to find how memories, personality traits and skills are stored. They want to find a connectome, or the mental makeup of a person.
