In Nature, researchers discuss how in mouse, an axonal connectivity map showing the wiring patterns across the entire brain has been created using an EGFP-expressing adeno-associated virus tracing technique, providing the first such whole-brain map for a vertebrate species.
In December 2013, Professor Colin Ingram, Director of the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University and Oversight Chair of the INCF Program on Standards for Data Sharing, suddenly passed away. To celebrate his scientific legacy there will be a one-day symposium on Thursday 24th July 2014 at Newcastle University, Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. A memorial service will be held on the evening of Wednesday, 23rd of July.
In Frontiers in Neuroinformatics, researchers at the Computational Neuroscience Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (Okinawa, Japan) introduce two new supporting toolkits that support geometry preparation and visualization for STEPS simulations.
