KnowledgeSpace is a community-based encyclopedia that links brain research concepts to data, models, and literature. It provides users with access to anatomy, gene expression, models, morphology, and physiology data from over 15 different neuroscience data/model repositories, such as Allen Institute for Brain Science and the Human Brain Project.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 0:58
Speaker: : Tom Gillespie

This lesson outlines NeuroMorpho.org, a centrally curated inventory of digitally reconstructed neurons, which contrains contributions from dozens of laboratories worldwide and is continuously updated as new morphological reconstructions are collected, published, and shared. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
