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.

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
