A connectome is a comprehensive map of neural connections in the brain, and may be thought of as its "wiring diagram". More broadly, a connectome would include the mapping of all neural connections within an organism's nervous system. (Wiki def) In awaretheory terminology the connectome would be a neuropoint limited to the brain at one point in time. However, since the brain's structure is always changing and so complex any currently developed "wiring diagram" of the brain is going to be approximate and thus not a specific neuropoint. A connectome will be a number of neuropoints averaged together and may not equal any specific existing neuropoint or previously existing neuropoint. Nonetheless, the study of connectomes is a beginning step in understanding which neuropaths map to which awarepaths and ixpepaths, which is the basis foundation for sciences of conscious existence.
