Brain Atlasing and Databasing in the Brain/MINDS Project

Japan’s Brain/MINDS project is a ten-year project that started in 2014 with a main goal to map the structure and function of the common marmoset brain (Callithrix jacchus) and connect this to human brain disease.I will present the neuroinformatics activities of the project, focusing on brain atlasing to provide a common space for the integration of heterogeneous brain imaging data, and the development of internal and open databases for data sharing and analysis. The long-term goal of the neuroinformatics work is to provide a valuable resource of marmoset brain data that researchers can use in their own studies.
