Brain/MINDS Marmoset Reference Atlas Set
About the Brain/MINDS Marmoset Reference Atlas Set (BMA)
This page provides access to the Brain/MINDS 3D Marmoset Brain Atlases that have been developed.
The atlases use different brain shapes as their bases, which we term ‘brain spaces’.
The BMA 2017 Ex Vivo release is a multi-modal Nissl & MRI 3D brain atlas where the Nissl histology data has been normalized to the MRI shape. The brain region annotation is now version 6.2, revised from the Hashikawa et. al (2015). The atlas contains over 200 cortical and sub-cortical annotations per hemisphere and improves upon the work of Hashikawa et al. (2015). State-of-the-art registration algorithms were used to register the different data modalities to one another and to remove noise and artifacts. The original Nissl and parcellation data (for one hemisphere only) have been warped to match the ex-vivo MRI data, then mirrored across the sagittal plane. The brain atlas can be used for tasks such as brain region identification and data analysis, such as connectomics.
The BMA 2019 Ex Vivo atlas builds on previous work and is composed of a population average ex-vivo MRI T2WI contrast with the BMA 2017 Ex Vivo dataset mapped to its shape.
