Resource:CoCoMac

Name: Resource:CoCoMac
Description: Online access (html or xml) to structural connectivity ('wiring') data on the Macaque brain. The database has become by far the largest of its kind, with data extracted from more than four hundred published tracing studies.

The main database, contains data from tracing studies on anatomical connectivity in the macaque cerebral cortex. Also available are a variety of tools including a graphical simulation workbench, map displays and the CoCoMac-Paxinos-3D viewer. Submissions are welcome. To overcome the problem of divergent brain maps ORT (Objective Relational Transformation) was developed, an algorithmic method to convert data in a coordinate- independent way based on logical relations between areas in different brain maps. CoCoMac data is used to analyze the organization of the cerebral cortex, and to establish its structure- function relationships. This includes multi-variate statistics and computer simulation of models that take into account the real anatomy of the primate cerebral cortex. This site

  • Provides full, scriptable open access to the data in CoCoMac (you must adhere to the citation policy)
  • Powers the graphical interface to CoCoMac provided by the Scalable Brain Atlas
  • Sports an extensive search/browse wizard, which automatically constructs complex search queries and lets you further explore the database from the results page.
  • Allows you to get your hands dirty, by using the custom SQL query service.
  • Displays connectivity data in tabular form, through the axonal projections service.
CoCoMac 2 was initiated at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and is currently supported by the German neuroinformatics node and the Computational and Systems Neuroscience group at the Juelich research institute.
