Yet another paper regarding Human Brain Project

Very interesting paper entitled “The Human Brain Project Hasn’t Lived Up to Its Promise”. Really? Definitely feels like “déjà vu”. For how long people have to repeat the same over and over again? Still, it explains many things, especially for somebody who didn’t know…

Interactive Human Brain Atlas Viewer

High-resolution annotated cytoarchitectonic alas of human brain (Allen Institute for brain Science), 710 Nissl-stained sections. Maximal resolution ~ 0.95 micrometer/pixel. Sections can be downloaded online, as well as using API. Some sections show damage and ruptures due to cutting and mounting, as well as high staining variability.

Virtual Microscopy Human Brain Atlas

Collection of high-quality, high-resolution annotated Nissl-stained sections of human brain (104 sections). Maximal resolution ~ 0.65 micrometer/pixel. All sections are of exceptional quality, including very good consistency of staining intensity. Unfortunately there are relatively big gaps (1.5-2.0 mm) between sections. Created by Jürgen K. Mai, Thomas Voss (Heinrich-Heine Universität, Institut für Anatomie I, Düsseldorf, Germany) and G. Paxinos (School of Psychology, University of New South Wales, Kensington, New South Wales, Australia). Copyright © 1994-2019
