Data Release from Mouse Brain Architecture Project

Jun 1, 2012 11:55 pm - Posted by Partha Mitra

The first installment of data has been released for the Mouse Brain Architecture Project, which aims to construct a whole-brain wiring diagram of mouse, at a “mesoscopic” scale corresponding to brain regions in classical neuroanatomy. The data just released – the first in what will be a regular series of releases – consists of gigapixel images of whole brain sections that can be zoomed to show individual neurons and their processes, a “virtual microscope”. The images are integrated with other data sources from the web as well as the literature, and are being made fully accessible to the scientific community as well as interested members of the general public.
