Marmoset Brain Connectivity Atlas

Authors : The project is lead by Piotr Majka of the Laboratory of Neuroinformatics at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology (Poland) and prof. Marcello Rosa at Monash University (Australia). Full list of contributors.
Description : The Marmoset Brain Connectivity Atlas allows for the exploration of a growing collection of retrograde tracer injections in the marmoset neocortex. Data obtained in different animals are registered to a common stereotaxic space of Paxinos et al. (2012) atlas, and the resource incorporates tools for quantitative analyses. In particular, the results can be downloaded in 3D volume format in a template space which allows for ready comparisons to topologies acquired by MRI.

Marmoset Brain Mapping Atlas and Template

Authors : Cirong Liu, Daniel Glen, Frank Ye, John Newman, Cecil Yen, Diego Szczupak, Xiaoguang Tian, Piotr Majka, Marcello Rosa, David Leopold, Afonso Silva
Description : The Marmoset Brain Mapping Atlas (previously NIH Marmoset Brain Atlas) aims at building comprehensive MRI-based marmoset brain atlases and tools to facilitate neuroimaging and connectome studies of marmosets.

Nencki-Monash Template

Authors : The template has been created in collaboration between the Laboratory of Neuroinformatics at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology (Poland) and prof. Marcello Rosa Laboratory at Monash University (Australia).
Description : The Nencki-Monash (NM) template represents a morphological average of 20 brains of young adult individuals, obtained by 3D reconstructions generated from Nissl-stained serial sections. The template combines combines the main advantages of histology-based atlases with features associated with MRI-based templates. It is also accompanied with spatial transformations to other popular marmoset brain templates, thus enabling integration with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and tracer-based connectivity data.
