Elsevier to Unveil “BrainNavigator” at ‘Neuroscience 2008’

17.11.2008
A revolutionary product that will change the face of brain research was announced today by Elsevier in partnership with the Allen Institute for Brain Science. BrainNavigator, a 3D research tool, will replace bulky desk atlases and move brain research online, saving scientists time while improving the quality of day-to-day research.

BrainNavigator is an electronic brain map that combines the coronal, transverse and sagittal atlases on easy to navigate planes that show detailed image descriptions of each brain section. Instead of printed graphs, BrainNavigator provides a 3D precise picture, allowing for better visualization, enhanced accuracy and increased productivity.

Researchers are also able to slice the brain virtually and overlay images to see sections that previously took hours to link. The preciseness of measurements on BrainNavigator leads to faster and easier identification, marking, and visualization of brain structures for researchers who depend on accurate research data.

“We are delighted to combine our cutting-edge 3-D technology with Elsevier's leading brain atlases in order to create valuable open access resources as a part of BrainNavigator,” said Allan Jones, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science. “By providing meaningful tools and rich content to the research community in a mixture of free and subscription content, the Allen Institute for Brain Science and Elsevier enable important advancements in brain research worldwide with BrainNavigator.”

“BrainNavigator will change the way Neuroscience research is conducted,” said Dr. Johannes Menzel, Publisher for Science and Technology at Elsevier, “by creating a research platform on a digital front instead of massive desk atlases, scientists can more effectively work while actively comparing against existing information. This tool is revolutionary for brain science.”

Elsevier will demo the prototype at Neuroscience 2008 in Washington D.C. and begin registering potential beta testers. Scheduled for release in May 2009, registered users will have free access to select content on the BrainNavigator prior to purchase. To catch a glimpse of this, a Webcast demonstration on November 14, along with on-site tutorials at the Neuroscience 2008 tradeshow in Washington D.C., will demonstrate to researchers how it will truly alter life in the lab.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
