Definition An interactive multiresolution brain atlas An interactive multiresolution brain atlas that is based on over 20 million megapixels of sub-micron resolution, annotated, scanned images of serial sections of both primate and non-primate brains and integrated with a high-speed database for querying and retrieving data about brain structure and function. Currently featured are complete brain atlas datasets for various species, including Macaca mulatta, Chlorocebus aethiops, Felis catus, Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus, Tyto alba and many other vertebrates. BrainMaps is currently accepting histochemical, immunocytochemical, and tracer connectivity data, preferably whole-brain. In addition, they are interested in EM, MRI, and DTI data. y are interested in EM, MRI, and DTI data.
