Researchers at the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience have just launched Brainmaps.org, an online database containing over 50 terabytes (15 million megapixels) of zoomable, high resolution neuroanatomical data. The database includes sets of data from humans, 4 monkey species, dogs, cats, rodents, monotremes (duck-billed platypus and echidna) and owls.

  3. With great respect to the brilliant work of the most respected neuroscientist Santiago Ramon Y Cajal.

    “Like the entomologist in search of brightly colored butterflies, my attention hunted, in the garden of the gray matter, cells with delicate and elegant form, the mysterious butterflies of the soul.” Santiago Ramon Y Cajal (1935)
