Brain Atlas Database of Japanese Monkey for WWW.
Neuroscience researches for elucidation of brain functions require electrophysiological, pharmacological or anatomical operations into the brain. However, no brain atlas of a Japanese monkey, which is used widely in these experiments, was made except detail maps of the brain stem. We have made magnetic resonance images as well as histological sections of a Japanese monkey brain. For the purpose of the practical and efficient use of these images, we will construct computer database for WWW, in which we can display, magnify, and compare these images by easy mouse operations.
