Definition Dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscienc Dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources including data, materials, and tools to advance neuroscience research by enabling discovery and access to public research data and tools worldwide through an open source, networked environment. Resource providers may make their resources accessible through the NIF and offers a variety of methods for making resources searchable through the NIF. NIF has a comprehensive vocabulary for annotating and searching neuroscience resources. For more information or to recommend a resource, follow the link to Register Your Resource (, or send us an e-mail at curation (at) Collaborating institutions working on the current version of NIF include University of California, San Diego, California Institute of Technology, George Mason University, Yale University Medical College, and Washington University.<br /> ge, and Washington University.<br />
