The Whole Brain Catalog

Think of your local Library catalog. Think of a catalog of your favorite sports gear. Think of the old Sears Roebuck Catalog. Now try to imagine a catalog of the whole brain. Scientists at the University of California at San Diego have embarked on the creation of the Whole Brain Catalog, “a client-server platform that provides rich 3-D views for researchers to zoom in, out, and around structures deep in a multi-scale spatial framework of the mouse brain.”

The online support for the Catalog is rich with documentation, images and background information. The Catalog is open-source and you can download it here.
