Short summary
We reviewed research perspectives and ambitions of connectivity scientists in order to improve joint connectivity research across disciplinary boundaries. We demonstrated the wide diversity of approaching science in the community. We introduced a shared mental model approach with an exploratory case study as a way to overcome persistent barriers in understanding by identifying gaps and overlaps of individual researchers' perspectives, which improves collaboration in interdisciplinary science.
