Mapping the human brain at multiple scales
The Julich Brain Atlas framework is a three-dimensional atlas of the human brain which replaces historical maps of the brain's microstructure such as that of Brodmann. It integrates high-resolution cytoarchitectonic maps with microstructural and connectivity data as well as neurotransmitter receptor expression profiles and functional data – all into a common reference space.
It is continuously expanded and openly accessible for researchers to systematically integrate multi-level data. It is interoperable in a way that it can be linked with other brain parcellations, databases and mapping projects. The Julich Brain Atlas offers a powerful tool for neuroscience and medicine alike.
