The Allen Brain Atlas encompasses several large-scale projects and makes the data and tools freely available online to scientists worldwide. These projects include the Mouse Spinal Cord, Human Cortex Study, Sleep Study, and Mouse Brain.
This sustainable archive supports the sharing and exchange of biomedical research data, accepts data generated by the biomedical research community and makes these data freely available. Biomedical imaging data from humans and animal models are available for download with descriptive metadata, and in some cases, associated clinical, microarray, or other biomedical data.
The Brain Machine Interface Platform (BMI PF) accumulates BMI (Brain Machine Interfaces)-related experimental data, mathematical models, and tools generated in neuroscience, computational theory, and robotics.
The CCDB is a publicly-accessible resource that allows researchers to query and download unique datasets derived from high resolution light microscopy and electron tomography. The CCDB accepts data contributions from the community and is developing a set of tools for management of imaging data.
The Cerebellar Development Transcriptome Database (CDT-DB) provides spatio-temporal gene expression profile information on the postnatal development of mouse cerebellum. It seeks to reproduce the genetic blueprint of cerebellar development.
This website provides a marketplace and discussion forum for sharing tools and data in neuroscience. It hosts experimental datasets for testing computational models of the brain and new analysis methods. The data include physiological recordings from sensory and memory systems, as well as eye movement data.
Entrez Gene is a searchable database of genes based on sequenced genomes; its content includes nomenclature, map location, gene products and their attributes, markers, phenotypes, and links to citations, sequences, variation details, maps, expression, homologs, protein domains and external databases.
The Genome database provides views for a variety of genomes, complete chromosomes, sequence maps with contigs, and integrated genetic and physical maps. The database is organized in six major organism groups: Archaea, Bacteria, Eukaryotae, Viruses, Viroids, and Plasmids and includes complete chromosomes, organelles and plasmids as well as draft genome assemblies.
The GeneNetwork consists of a set of linked resources for systems genetics. It has been designed for multiscale integration of networks of genes, transcripts, and traits such as toxicity, cancer susceptibility, and behavior. This open resource combines more than 25 years of legacy data generated by hundreds of scientists with full genome sequence and deep transcriptome data sets.
The GENSAT project is a collection of pictorial gene expression maps of the brain and spinal cord of the mouse. Using EGFP BAC-transgenics, this project provides the scientific community with tools to catalog, map, and electrophysiologically record from individual cells. The transgenic mice created by this project are available to the scientific community.
The ICBM Subject Database is a web-based database infrastructure that simplifies image dataset collection, organization and dissemination. The data can be queried using a combination of subject demographics and scan-related attributes. Authorized users may view representations of the data and form collections of datasets that can be downloaded or fed directly into the Pipeline environment for distributed processing and analysis.
The Invertebrate Brain Platform (IVB PF) integrates experimental data, mathematical models, and research tools relevant to the study of invertebrate brains, neurons, and behavior.
The primary goal of the MBL is to systematically map and characterize genes that modulate architecture of the mammalian CNS. You can search the MBL for cases by strain, age, sex, body or brain weight. The MBL is a collaborative project between Robert W. Williams (Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics, University of Tennessee) and Glenn D. Rosen (Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston).
NDAR hosts genetic, imaging, and phenotypic research data relevant to autism, making these data available to qualified researchers. NDAR also has the capability to let investigators use NDAR as a space in which to share data with select collaborators in ongoing studies. Through its Data Dictionary, NDAR will foster the development of a shared, common understanding of the complex data-landscape that characterizes autism research.
Neural ElectroMagnetic Ontologies (NEMO) is an NIH-funded project researching the design and implementation of ontologies to address a critical need for tools to support representation, storage, and sharing of brain electromagnetic data. NEMO ontologies include concepts related to ERP data (including spatial and temporal features of specific ERP patterns), data provenance, and the experimental paradigms that were used to collect data. The NEMO database is a repository that stores raw and processed data, ontology-based tools for ERP analysis, and annotated results.
The NeuroImaging Platform collects information about neuroimaging research and provides them to researchers all over the world. You can access bibliographic information of text book and peer reviewed journal papers. For practical purposes, programs to present the stimuli, analysis software, and raw data in neuroimaging experiments with various methods such as functional MRI (fMRI), MEG, and NIRS are also included.
NeuroMorpho.Org is a centrally curated inventory of digitally reconstructed neurons. It contains contributions from over two dozen labs and is continuously updated as new morphological reconstructions are collected, published, and shared.
- Publicize and archive models and related data and tools regarding Neuron-Glia functions. (Visitors can only browse and download limited items. Need to register as a user to submit and download items.)
- Provide workspace for sharing models, data, tools and memos privately among group members of registered users. (Need to register as a user to do this. Upon e-mailed request to the administrator, a group of users will be established.)
The Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse facilitates the finding and comparison of neuroimaging resources for fMRI and related structural analyses. Individuals can contribute their own tools and resources. NITRC also hosts a number of datasets, most notably the 1000 Functional Connectomes resting state fMRI project.
This website serves as the portal through which neuroimaging data (anatomical MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and MR spectroscopy) from the NIH MRI Study of Normal Brain Development can be obtained by qualified researchers. Clinical and behavioral measures such as neurological examinations, behavioral ratings, neuropsychological testing, structured psychiatric interviews, and hormonal measures from urine and saliva samples are also available.
PhysioNet offers free access via the web to large collections of recorded physiologic signals and related open-source software. In addition to providing free electronic access to PhysioBank data and PhysioToolkit software, the PhysioNet web site offers service and training via on-line tutorials at entry and advanced levels.
The SenseLab Project contains 8 related databases that support experimental research on, and computational modeling of, information processing in nerve cells and microcircuits. The databases include dendritic membrane properties, a large inventory of computational models of neurons and microcircuits, and a comprehensive inventory of olfactory receptors. The neuronal databases are provided with tools which allow searches for motifs of properties across different neuron types.
SumsDB is a repository of brain-mapping data (surfaces and volumes; structural and functional data) from many laboratories. This site also provides WebCaret, an online visualization tool for viewing SumsDB datasets.
