Welcome to BrainCircuits.io
Modern connectomics – the mapping of brain circuit connectivity at synaptic resolution – has advanced tremendously in recent years. Neuroscientist are starting to have access to unprecedented information about the structure of neural circuits. Image acquisition and data processing methods are continuously improving and research is shifting from laborious, manual circuit reconstruction to high-throughput mapping pipelines. Thereby, a growing number of digital brain circuit datasets with an extraordinary level of complexity are becoming available from various species, brain regions and developmental stages. The BrainCircuit.io platform aims to collect, curate and disseminate these brain circuit datasets to the wider neuroscience community for further analysis and comparative studies.
You may start by exploring publications from different species or browse 3D brain circuits datasets. You can also suggest new datasets or read more about comparative connectomics. Feel free to get in touch with us with any questions or suggestions.
INCF is applying to be a mentor organization at GSoC 2019. As a student, you can apply to contribute to the BrainCircuits.io platform and get sponsored by Google. Visit the INCF page to learn more!
