This is the kind of board I am using. Can anyone tell me the purpose of the circled item (those connectors), and how I would go about using them in a circuit?

Thank-youIMG_4080.jpeg

Never really used this kind of boards myself, I much prefer strip board. But since no one else answered they seem to be connectors where you can connect your circuitry for example +, -, and ground. Might want to get opinion from someone who actually has used board like that with connectors in place.

They would plug into either an edge connector on another board or an edge connector that has cables coming out of it

They are for what ever you can use them to be, I never used them much myself.

I too prefer strip board. I also have a little pcb with a 16 pin IC socket on it. Each pin of the socket comes out to a PCB pin at the edge of the board. They are ideal for doing a quick birds nest circuit and easy to make changes. Have had them for the best part of 40 years. They have been used for many many quick circuit developments both analogue and digital.
