NeuroCave helps neuroscientists to explore structural and functional connectomes describing the interconnectivity between brain regions. To do so, nodes are placed to build a brain like shape where shape differentiate the right and left hemisphere of the brain, either cube or sphere respectively. The color is encoded based the nodes category, and connection are shown through bent line connecting both node together.
The NeuroCave uses both a visualization inside a VR HMD and a classical 2D workstation, the immersive environment being used for exploration while the classical workstation for more precise query, to confirm hypothesis. Users did not find troublesome to switch between both system since they seemed complementary.
