Neuroscience Data Integration Through Use of Digital Brain Atlases (Day 1)

Difficulty level

This course contains an introduction to currently available reference atlases for mouse and rat brain. It will demonstrate how the 3D brain templates for the reference atlases are acquired, how they are used as a basis for delineating the structures of the brain, how they can be enriched by other data modalities, and how they can be used as a basis for assigning location (coordinate based or semantic) to a wide range of structural and functional data collected from the brain. The course will also outline examples of data system employed to organize neuroscience data collections in the context of reference atlases as well as analytical workflows applied to the data, with opportunities for hands-on exploration of selected tools.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Concepts for integration of research data
  • Organization and management of heterogeneous neuroscience research data
  • Reference atlases for the brain
  • Workflows for analysis of neuroscience image data
