The first round selection criteria required two or more abstracts from the Journal of Comparative Neurology that mention the region. In addition these abstracts must also mention a species term for rhesus monkey, macaca fasicularis, rat, mouse or human. To link to existing NeuroLex terms, the mentions must be resolved to an enclosing region after neuroanatomical direction prefix term (dorsal, posterior) or the phrase "nucleus of the".
First batch of edits were uploaded on June 1st 2011.
Detailed procedure for selecting regions:
- select specific-to-general mappings to an existing NITSFD brain region concept
- select terms that are co-mentioned with rhesus monkey, macaca fasicularis, rat, mouse or human
- select terms that are mentioned in at least two Journal of Comparative Neurology abstracts [1975-Jan 2011]
- remove one to many mappings (manual)
- example Medial central nucleus of the amygdala mapping to both Amygdala and Central amygdaloid nucleus. Central amygdaloid nucleus was chosen in this case.
- find and edit synonym relationships (manual)
- split or remove mentions with "and" (manual)
