Whole Brain Catalog

website

Provider: Whole Brain project - UC-San Diego
Descriptions: The Whole Brain Catalog is the flagship project of the Whole Brain Project at the University of California - San Diego. It is an open source, downloadable, multi-scale virtual catalog of the mouse brain and its cellular components, providing zoomable 3D views of structures and their surroundings deep inside the mouse brain. The data is also brought to life with simulation and animation. "In providing open source and collaborative tools, the Whole Brain Project allows neuroscience researchers to make new connections with collaborators and newly discovered data. Combining previously unconnected databases across a single network make possible new and exciting insights about the brain."

Whole Brain Atlas

database

Provider: Harvard Medical School
Contents: , , , , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: This atlas is a neuroimaging educational tool, showing trans-axial, saggital and coronal views of the brain in cross-sectional MRI, CT and nuclear imaging techniques, with side-by-side navigation. Image series are provided for the normal brain and for its disease states: cardiovascular, neoplastic, degenerative and inflammatory/infectious. In disease states, clicking a link reading "clinical" will bring the user to a page of text explaining the case being viewed. The "Top 100 Brain Structures" feature is a study tool allowing the user to view structures individually, or to view a group of brain structures marked with pointers, labelled or unlabelled. The site is co-sponsored by the Departments of Radiology and Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, its Countway Library of Medicine and the American Academy of Neurology.

Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC)

database

Provider: NITRC,
Contents: , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Originally funded by the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NITRC facilitates finding and comparing neuroimaging resources for functional and structural neuroimaging analyses—tools that were once hidden in a researcher's laboratory and well-known resources. NITRC collects and points to standardized information about tools, making the task of finding and comparing them easier. This site can help researchers find the right functional or structural neuroimaging tool or resource and serve as an aid in deciding whether it will be helpful to them.
